It was our Super Star Hannahs birthday yesterday, we wish her all the very best always.
Are you heading to COP28 in Dubai? 

We are extremely pleased to announce our Managing Director, Alison Sentance, has been one of a select group of candidates approved to attend the upcoming COP28 in Dubai as an Australia Party Observer. As an Observer Alison will have access to the Blue Zone a UNFCCC-managed site open to accredited party and observer delegates. This zone hosts all the formal annual meetings and negotiations throughout the 2 week conference. 

Those who know Ali know her as a passionate nomad entrepreneur who for almost 20 years has been working across remote and regional Australia, advocating for Aboriginal people and their communities, establishing the Foundation and supporting the establishment of other innovative remote businesses, determined to see both humanity and the environment benefit from sustainable solutions long into the future. 

This COP28 conference held in Dubai is a gathering of not only world leaders, ministers, and negotiators but also representatives from various sectors, all coming together to discuss how to limit and prepare for future climate change. The first Global Stocktake of the implementation of the Paris Agreement will conclude at COP 28. 

COP 28 will focus on four paradigm shifts:
• Fast-tracking the energy transition and slashing emissions before 2030;
• Transforming climate finance, by delivering on old promises and setting the framework for a new deal on finance;
• Putting nature, people, lives, and livelihoods at the heart of climate action; and
• Mobilizing for the most inclusive COP ever.

Alison is looking forward to sharing and contributing to a collective of like-minded delegates. If anyone in our network will also be attending the conference please reach out. 

Or if you would like to touch base with Ali upon her return to learn and understand more please reach out oncountry@abcau.com.au 

Damper, our word of the week has been made by First Nations Peoples for thousands of years and is pronounced as Dam-pa which is also known as bush bread or seed cake.

Traditionally, the act of bread making was quite a labour intensive task that was carried out by several women at once and it begun with collecting seasonal seeds, grain, legumes, roots or nuts -  winnowing and grinding them into a flour. The women would then usually add water to form a dough but if the seed had enough moisture they wouldnt need to - such as Spinifex seeds. The dough was then placed in hot ashes for baking, either into small buns or a large loaf - this was a great way to prepare food if the group was about to travel for some time.
