ALEC has been developing resources to further the understanding of climate science for Aboriginal people in Central Australia.
These include the Climate Change in Central Australia animations, which have been translated into the Arrernte and Warlpiri languages, and the "What is Climate Change Flyer".
Anecdotal evidence suggest that many members of Aboriginal communities are already noticing the changes in climate and the impact this is having on local environments, including changing weather patterns, more heatwaves and changing bush tucker seasons. However, there is limited understanding of the issue of climate change, and limited resources in first languages to help community members understand this complex issue.
If you work with Aboriginal people, or know of any community members who would benefit from reading the "What is Climate Change" flyer drop into the ALEC office at 90 Gap Road for some copies, or download the What is Climate Change Flyer here
A big thankyou to Pauline Clack Designs and a generous donation from a community member that enabled this resource to be developed.
