Content

The Australian environment as we see it today is a reflection of historical and ongoing interactions between its peoples, their actions and knowledge base. Recent management of the Australian environment has been largely underpinned by western science. This dominance however, is being challenged both theoretically and practically by the acceptance of a more holistic and integrated approach to managing land, water and resources. This unit explores the current and emerging perspectives and knowledge that are influencing current management of Australian natural and cultural environments.

Ecological, environmental, economic and community development understandings of environmental management provide a starting point to examine the importance of cultural influences on community based natural and cultural resource management. The unit focuses on the connection between knowledge and management of Natural and Cultural environments and aims to develop foundational skills by researching, reading, analysing and creatively responding to natural and cultural resource management theory and practice.

Assessment

3 x online tests (5% each) 15%, guided reading and related questions 35%, oral presentation on local natural and cultural environmental issues 25%, case study on community directed management of natural and cultural environments 25%
