Activity description: This project has been sponsored by Professor Anna Haebich's role as Orbicom UNESCO Chair in association with The Centre For Public Culture and Ideas, Griffith University. Intersections is essentially a web portal which promotes public knowledge, innovative interdisciplinary endeavours and culturally diverse interpretations of the Australian landscape. In keeping with one of UNESCO's central mandates – to increase, maintain and promote the free exchange of ideas and knowledge - this website disseminates public knowledge about the many exciting projects bringing together science, culture, history and community in innovative ways to study the Australian environment. Advantages of this website include publicising projects, providing a centre point to streamline research, and creating opportunities for greater communication, networking and information-exchange between practitioners, new researchers and interested members of the public. Intersections is especially focused on promoting; Indigenous knowledge and perceptions, Australian Aboriginal archaeology and anthropology, cultural identity and nature, imaginings of the future and sacred ecologies among other more prominent environmental issues such as pollution and salinity. This project meets the objectives of promoting cultural diversity, forging industry and community partnerships for knowledge production and creative output, capacity building for Indigenous communities, preserving Indigenous and other community knowledges and heritage, encouraging inter-disciplinary research, creating appropriate content and curriculum, developing innovative pedagogies and articulating with important contemporary debates in public culture and ideas. This project has been submitted to the Golden Book database.
