Webinar | Exploring current state legislation reforms in Indigenous heritage

Published 14th May 20 4:25 PM

Bringing Reconciliation Week to a close, EIANZ and the Environmental Defenders Office (EDO) present a webinar focusing on legislation concerning Indigenous heritage and the current reforms that are taking place in state based mechanisms around Australia. EDO lawyers take action on behalf of traditional owners and custodians to help them protect their ancestral lands and cultural artefacts from destructive development, tourism and mining. The EDO is very active in this space - a submission was lodged to the EPBC Act review with a detailed response to Indigenous and cultural heritage, and the Queensland EDO recently lodged a submission to the Cultural Heritage Acts Review.

Meet the Speaker: Lauren Butterly

Lauren is a Senior Solicitor for the EDO in Perth; she holds a Bachelor of Arts (History) focusing on Indigenous history, is currently completing her thesis on Indigenous rights and governance in marine environments and has served as Principle Associate to Chief Justice Wayne Martin of the Supreme Court of WA. She is the current Commissioning Editor of the Australian Environment Review and has written numerous book chapters and articles on environmental law and native title. Lauren has recently presented with EIANZ in the EPBC Act Review Webinar Series, where she spoke on matters concerning areas for reform on Indigenous heritage in the EPBC Act review.
