The Victorian Aboriginal and Local Government Action Plan (VALGAP) is being reviewed to help inform a future Victorian Aboriginal and Local Government Strategy.
The review will identify where the current VALGAP has been effective and where it has fallen short. This will shape an approach which leads to effective, lasting and collaborative partnerships. The aim is to embed the rights, culture, heritage, needs and aspirations of Aboriginal Victorians into the critical work and functioning of local government through a future strategy.
As part of the review, council forums are being held throughout Victoria. In support of the principles of self-determination, the locations for the council forums have been determined by using Traditional Owner boundaries while also seeking to maximise participation of local government.
Council forums have already taken place in Mildura, Shepparton, Morwell, Colac and Bendigo.
Two forums are left in Melbourne – coming up on Monday 11 November, from 1pm to 3pm or 6:30pm to 8:30pm.
