The research project is based on previous research on social inclusion with First Australians, in order to protect the global commons and the public good. The philosophy underpinning the approach grew out of the research in Alice Springs and in the Southern Region with Aboriginal Australians who stressed that ‘we are the land’. Olive Veverbrants, an Arrernte Australian, stressed ‘the earth is our mother’ and we depend on it for our survival.
