The NBN effect

The NBN effect


Add to calendar

Presenter:  Tim Saul, Head of nbn™ local South Australia/Northern Territory for NBN Co

Date: Jul 03, 2018

Time: 2:30pm to 3:30pm

Contact person:  Northern Institute
T: 08 8946 6854
E: thenortherninstitute@cdu.edu.au

Location:  Northern Institute, Yellow Building 1, Level 2, Room 48 (Savanna Room)

Target audience:  Open to the Public - All Welcome - Please Share

Abstract: NBN Co (nbn) was established in 2009 to design, build and operate Australia’s new high-speed, wholesale local access broadband network. Underpinned by a purpose to connect Australia and bridge the digital divide, nbn’s key objective is to ensure all Australians have access to fast broadband as soon as possible, at affordable prices, and at least cost.
With the nbn rollout almost 100% complete across the Northern Territory and scheduled to be complete across Australia by 2020, this is a perfect opportunity to discuss the impact that the nbn has had to date. August 9 2016, was not only Census night but it also marked a point where almost 1 in 3 homes could access the nbn network. NBN Co realised that the Census data would capture a social and economic snapshot of a nation in transition – we had ourselves a control group – those who had been connected to the nbn versus those who had not.
Shortly after the Australian Bureau of Statistics released the final Census results, nbn commissioned economics firm AlphaBeta to conduct the first real-world study of the social and economic impacts of the nbn rollout. The results are evidence that nbn is delivering on its original  purpose to foster productivity and drive economic and social benefits for all Australians.
This seminar will unpack some of the findings from this research, look at how nbn is complementing the evolving digital landscape and discuss some of the exciting work the nbn local team is doing to support regional, rural and remote Australia.

About Tim Saul: Working for NBN Co across South Australia and the Northern Territory, Tim is responsible for managing corporate expectation and reputation, and for delivering community education and engagement programs in areas where the nbn™ access network is being deployed. Tim’s major stakeholders include all levels of Government, local media and local business and community stakeholder groups and he is passionate about working with all communities to ensure they understand and embrace the opportunities provided by the nbn™ access network.
Tim understands the importance of telecommunications to regional and remote Australia and is committed to helping people living and working in these areas gain access to all the benefits that can be delivered by fast and reliable broadband. Tim is also passionate about indigenous engagement, recently spending time in the APY Lands and Laynhapuy Homelands to understand how the nbn™ access network can improve health and education services to those communities and other indigenous communities across the country.

RSVP by Monday, 02 July 2018 via Outlook or thenortherninstitute@cdu.edu.au

Indigenous Leader Eddie Fry has challenged us to think about a fifty-year plan and ‘the Indigenous Estate lifted beyond current perceptions of what is possible in Indigenous Australia’.

This presentation discusses the future of northern Australia as a leader in understanding, as well as partnered approaches to economic prosperity, culturally engaged leadership and social engagement. We ask if the people and institutions of northern Australia draw on deep expertise in innovation, knowledge of our region and its histories, recognition of land and sea rights to turn change into adaptive pathways, rights into intergenerational strength and sustainability and misadvantage to advantage.

The people of northern Australia have the opportunity to be leaders in innovation and change management. It’s time to ask what is possible and how will we be a part of the future.

Census of Population and Housing: Understanding the Increase in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Counts, 2006-2016

Census of Population and Housing: Understanding the Increase in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Counts, 2006-2016


Add to calendar

Presenter:  Valese Sewell, Assistant Director Centre of Excellence for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Statistics, Australian Bureau of Statistics

Date: Jul 17, 2018

Time: 9:30am to 10:30am

Contact person:  Northern Institute, Charles Darwin University
T: 08 8946 6854
E: thenortherninstitute@cdu.edu.au

Location:  Northern Institute, Yellow Building 1, Level 2, Room 48 (Savanna Room)

Target audience:  Open to the public - All welcome - Please share

Abstract: There were 649,171 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people counted in the 2016 Census. This represented an 18 per cent (100,803 people) increase since the 2011 Census and is comparable to the increase of 21 per cent observed between 2006 and 2011. These increases are greater than can be explained by demographic factors alone (e.g. births over deaths and internal/overseas migration) and have important implications for the interpretation of Census data for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), with the guidance of a specialist advisory group, including a representative from CDU (Dr Andrew Taylor) is currently undertaking analysis on the increase in counts between 2011 and 2016. This work builds on analysis published by the ABS following the 2011 Census as Census of Population and Housing: Understanding the Increase in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Counts (ABS cat. no. 2077.0). The analysis focuses on:

  • Changes in the composition of the increase population (e.g. changes in age/sex structures and geographic distribution)
  • Demographic factors of population change (e.g. births, deaths and migration)
  • Changing propensity to identify
  • People for whom Indigenous status is unknown
  • Impact of the increase on selected characteristics such as education attainment, labour force participation and income

This session will consist of an overview of analysis and findings to date presented by the ABS followed by discussion time where attendees will be asked to provide feedback and input on the current approach to this analysis and opportunities for further analysis.

Book launch - Remote Freedoms: Politics, Personhood and Human Rights in Aboriginal Central Australia


Add to calendar

Presenter:  Dr Sarah Holcombe and Professor Rolf Gerritsen

Date: Jul 27, 2018

Time: 3:00pm to 4:30pm

Contact person:  Alice Springs Campus Library
T: 08 8959 5233
E: alice.library@cdu.edu.au

Location:  Alice Springs Campus Library

Target audience:  This event is open to the public. RSVP is required.

What does it mean to be a "rights-holder" and how does it come about? Remote Freedoms explores the contradictions and tensions of localised human rights work in very remote Indigenous communities.

Based on field research with Anangu of Central Australia, this book investigates how universal human rights are understood, practiced, negotiated and challenged in concert and in conflict with Indigenous rights.

Moving between communities, government, regional NGOs and international UN forums, Sarah E. Holcombe addresses how the notion of rights plays out within the distinctive and ambivalent sociopolitical context of Australia, focusing specifically on Indigenous women and their experiences of violence. Can the secular modern rights-bearer accommodate the ideals of the relational, spiritual Anangu person?

Engaging in a translation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights into the local Pintupi-Luritja vernacular and observing various Indigenous interactions with law enforcement and domestic violence outreach programs, Holcombe offers new insights into our understanding of how the global rights discourse is circulated and understood within Indigenous cultures. She reveals how, in the postcolonial Australian context, human rights are double-edged: they enforce assimilation to a neoliberal social order at the same time that they empower and enfranchise the Indigenous citizen as a political actor.

Remote Freedoms writes Australia's Indigenous peoples into the international debate on localising rights in multicultural terms.

Sarah E. Holcombe is Senior Research Fellow at the University of Queensland and a Visiting Fellow at the Australian National University.

Presenter:  Stephanie von Gavel, Business Development Manager, CSIRO Land & Water

Date: Jul 30, 2018

Target audience:  Open to the Public - All Welcome - Please Share

Abstract: In partnership with Indigenous communities working on country, the Atlas of Living Australia (ALA – www.ala.org.au) is exploring the role of information management platforms in bridging the boundaries between traditional and contemporary Indigenous knowledge and western science. This presentation will provide an overview of the ALA’s Indigenous Ecological Knowledge (IEK) program of work which aims to recognise the essential nature of a collaborative approach, and to provide tools to enable and empower greater Indigenous participation in biodiversity information management and assessment, and to support other aspirations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people related to ecological or biodiversity knowledge. The presentation will also pose some questions around the role of digital infrastructures or platforms in how Indigenous knowledge is digitally captured, managed, and shared in the “information supply chain”.

About Stephanie von Gavel: Stephanie von Gavel is a Business Development Manager with CSIRO Land & Water, and previously the Atlas of Living Australia. She has over 25 years’ experience in technology transfer, business development and strategy development in the areas of agribusiness, inclusive innovation, biodiversity, information platforms and Indigenous related research.
