Reconciliation Action Plan

Message from the Mayor

Reconciliation Action Plan cover

City of Prospect has a proud history of community; however, our association with the South Australian landscape is a mere dot on our continent’s history. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have been the custodians of this land for more than 60,000 years, making them the oldest Indigenous culture in the world. It is with this knowledge that we recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as the first Australians with a unique place in our cultural history.

I see reconciliation as vital for all Australians in our search for identity and, on behalf of City of Prospect; I am genuinely committed to driving positive change. It is in the spirit of mutual respect, equality, and building genuine, positive relationships with lasting impact, that I present our 2018- 2020 Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan to you.

This plan embeds reconciliation across all City of Prospect business practices, and focuses on Kaurna people’s connection to the local area, strengthening our relationships, supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses, demonstrating respect, providing opportunities for cultural learning and career development and celebrating our shared successes.

We look forward to the time when the goals of our first Australians are shared goals. Ultimately, we look forward to deep and lasting reconciliation between Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islanders peoples and the broader community that leads to recognition of a shared history and a common future, intrinsically bound as one people, with one history - a remarkable story about a journey that has come so far and yet is always at the beginning.

I am confident that working together with respect, we will achieve this.

Mayor David O’Loughlin
