Beyond Juukan Gorge - Uranium, Troglodyte Extinction & Cultural Cringe, with Kado Muir

The Green Dream

Oct 1 2022 • 33 mins

What are cave dwelling Troglodytes? Is it a coincidence that places of cultural significance often seem to be in resource rich areas, for example the planned Yeelirrie Uranium mine? Why should your Financial Adviser be aware of these issues? Join us for this special Ethical Investment Week 2022 interview with Kado Muir.

It’s a year since my last podcast discussion with Kado, and a lot has happened in that time. In response to the Juukan Gorge incident, the First Nations Heritage Protection Alliance was formed. In late 2021, Kado helped produce a Toolkit for Investors, designed to contribute to the protection of First Nations cultural heritage which is unique to this country and part of the common legacy of all Australians. Also, since Juukan Gorge, progress has been made in other areas - such as the Taskforce on Nature Based Financial Disclosure. In short, there’s a lot happening which will assist both cultural heritage and biodiversity. Kado and I discuss this progress, along with exploring what companies can do to effectively engage with Aboriginal culture.

I hope you enjoy this discussion with Kado Muir.

We wish to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land we recorded on, the Wardandi Noongar people. We pay our respects to them and their culture; and to elders past, present and future.
