GreenCollar says “YES”

GreenCollar says “YES” to recognising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the Constitution through a Voice to Parliament

GreenCollar supports saying “YES” to recognising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the Constitution through a Voice to Parliament. We support the Voice as a simple and practical step on the path to creating a better future together.-

The Voice will be an advisory committee made up of everyday Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from across the country, with a diverse range of backgrounds, ages, and ideas.  This committee will give Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people a constitutionally protected say in laws affecting them.

We stand together with more than 80% of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people in supporting recognition through the creation of a Voice to Parliament.

As Australians, we want to see 65,000 years of Indigenous connection, knowledge and culture recognised in our Constitution.

Every day, the team at GreenCollar is privileged to work and walk with Traditional Owners and their communities in many parts of Australia.  In the communities where we work, we are lucky enough to listen and learn from Traditional Owners as we work together to find ways to tackle climate change, stop extinctions and loss of biodiversity and restore landscapes.

Through our work, we see and strongly believe that when decisions are based on local knowledge, we get better outcomes.

The Uluru Statement invited all Australians to walk together in a movement of the Australian people for a better future.  It pointed to the incredible gift that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture is to Australia.

We hope all Australians accept the invitation offered in the Uluru Statement to walk together and vote “YES” in the referendum on 14 October.

What are Reef Credits and how are they generated?

Being paid to implement best practice land management and deliver cleaner water to the Reef, without negatively impacting productivity may seem too good to be true. But according to GreenCollar Business Development Manager Bart Dryden, and the numerous farmers already running Reef Credit projects, it really is a win:win transaction that benefits both the farmer and the environment.
