Geelong Sustainability acknowledges that we walk upon the traditional lands of First Nations peoples. We pay our respects to them and recognise the continuing gift of their cultures to the life and spirit of Australia. Sovereignty has never been ceded. It always was and always will be, Aboriginal land.
