They will be invited to attend a Stick of speech ceremony; a technical diplomacy and mutual listening tools used in the council or meeting. This exercise will allow them to express themselves on the issues addressed by the Aboriginal guide. They pose a reflection on their roles in society and their impact on the environment.
