3KND early last week was at the Mantra Bell City for the Coalition of Peaks meeting. The Coalition of Peaks were meeting on how to engage with the Government regarding Closing the Gap for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. To listen to what a few members of the Coalition of Peak had to say click on the link below.
"An historic Partnership Agreement on Closing the Gap has been agreed between the Commonwealth Government, State and Territory Governments and a Coalition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peak Bodies. The Partnership Agreement means that for the first time Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, through their peak body representatives, will share decision making with governments on Closing the Gap.
The Partnership Agreement sets out how governments and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peaks bodies will work together to agree a new national agreement on Closing the Gap, including any new Closing the Gap targets and implementation and monitoring arrangements."
