A collective of Indigenous co-design members and a supporting team are collaborating to establish an Indigenous-led Digital Climate Stories Platform.

The platform will establish and grow an Indigenous data lake that enables communities to be on-ground researchers on their Country, to extend nature-based solutions that matter in everyday lives.

The concept and collaborations for the Indigenous-led Digital Climate Story Platform emerged through the National First Peoples' Gathering on Climate Change on Yorta Yorta Country, Barmah Forest and Gimuy-walubarra yidi Country, Gimuy (Cairns). This work continues to connect with the National First Peoples Platform on Climate Change.

What we want to achieve

As a collective group we are developing a concept and a prospectus for a Climate Stories Platform that aims to:

  • Build on capabilities as first responders across multiple scales
  • Strengthen storytelling between groups and facilitate a culturally safe peer-to-peer learning network
  • Further Indigenous methodologies in nature-based solutions
  • Expand the Indigenous Nations’ data lake
  • Work collaboratively between Indigenous and Western data to enhance Indigenous climate responses and adaptation priorities
  • Build trusted and reliable data sources and networks.

The next step in the collaboration is to establish Indigenous-led and centred governance framework for the Climate Stories Platform. We are currently developing a proposal for funding.
