Authored by Danièle Hromek in 2020
Developed for Marine Estate Management Authority, Department of Planning, Industry and Environment
This document provides an approach for engaging with Country—and therefore community and culture —as part of planning, design and environmental management disciplines. Also included is an overview of a process for developing a masterplan framework for caring for Country. This writing is specifically directed towards planners, environmental managers, architects, designers, engineers, public servants, developers and decisionmakers who are directly affecting Country through their work. The approach encourages all working in these fields to develop their own understanding of and relationship to Country and those First Peoples who relate to it. As such, there is a discussion about understanding Country included specifically in relation to the built environment.
