Our rapidly changing society involves many new challenges for Traditional Owners, as it does for everyone. New industries such as renewable energy, critical minerals, and carbon sequestration demand new uses of country both on and offshore. This module will look at how these new technologies are dealt with under native title and cultural heritage regimes.

Professional Development Modules

Storey & Ward Professional Development Modules provide comprehensive analysis of the statutory, regulatory and cultural environment in which First Nations rights are activated in Australia and internationally.

They provide an opportunity for continuing professional development (CPD) for legal, cultural heritage and government operating in these areas.

Our core module, Native Title and Cultural Heritage – An Australian Perspective, provides a solid foundation to understand the history and theory of land justice in Australian legislation, and provides an opportunity to hear first-hand from Traditional Owners about their experiences.

Our continuation training modules, including New Technologies and Uses of Country – First Nations’ Rights, provide more detailed examination of cultural heritage legislation and the broader land rights environments in each state or territory, future acts, international rights and the impact of new technologies.

Each module provides a full day, in-person session with accessible course materials and an opportunity to hear from Traditional Owners about lived experience.
