Desert Knowledge Precinct Educational Experiences – full day

Showcasing the important work of the Desert Knowledge Precinct partners, visitors can gain insight into the 'two-ways' knowledge journeys underway at the Precinct.

A full day educational tour caters for all age groups and learning levels and engages visitors with the living Arrernte culture – the First Nations people of Mparntwe (Alice Springs) – to discover how Indigenous Knowledge is informing the development of processes and technologies that progress the sustainability of desert and arid zone communities, both within Australia and around the world.

If your interests are in learning more about Indigenous Culture, Knowledge and Wisdom; renewable energy systems; satellite technology; adapting for climate change and arid zone sustainability; then, please consider this full day educational experience.

Features include: two Speaker Presentations, visits to the DKA Solar Centre, Batchelor Institute, Centre for Appropriate Technology's RTE ground station satellite dishes, and cost includes breakfast and lunch at the onsite Irrarnte Café.
