Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) – Indigenous Art Story by Brooke Sutton
ZEN Energy would like to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the lands and waters on which we work. In our work, we recognise the importance of Country – not just as a place, but how it also maintains community, family, kin, lore and language. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and future.
OUR MAIN GOALS
“In 1967 we were counted, in 2017 we seek to be heard. We leave base camp and start our trek across this vast country. We invite you to walk with us in a movement of the Australian people for a better future.” – Uluru Statement from the Heart
Our vision for reconciliation is to create an environment that acknowledges and respects the rich and sustained cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The journey we must walk together is grounded in social justice, engagement, and respect. We aspire to a future where our First Peoples feel valued, supported and have a strong and clear voice on all issues that affect their peoples, communities and nations.
Through this first Reflect RAP, we are committing to an ongoing process of education, Truth Telling and learning to better understand our nation’s past, so that we can shape a better future. Our vision for reconciliation is united, where we embrace opportunities to learn, grow, transform and heal together as a nation.
ZEN’s journey to date has been focused on our mission to decarbonise our communities, now we start our journey of reconciliation with Australia’s First Peoples. As the Uluru Statement from the Heart invited Australians to walk with First Peoples, ZEN invites Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to walk with our business.
