Please join us at 12pm on Friday 21 June when A/Prof Melissa Nursey Bray from ? will give a talk entitled 'Old Ways for New Days: Indigenous peoples and climate adaptation, Australia'.
Melissa's research investigates the connection between people and the environment. She focuses on how to engage communities to be part of environmental decision making, particularly in the context of climate change and biodiversity protection. She has worked with Indigenous, ports, local government and fishing communities on a range of projects. These projects have examined how conflict, social and cultural values, knowledge, social learning and perceptions affect how people become involved in or help drive environmental sustainability.
Her most recent work explores how different communities can adapt to climate change. This has included developing adaptation strategies for Indigenous peoples, looking at how urban areas can be ‘greened’ and the ways in which fisheries can be made more resilient and responsive to climate threats.
