NAIDOC Week – Barangaroo Site
NAIDOC is a celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and an opportunity to recognise the contributions of Indigenous Australians in various fields. NAIDOC stands for National Aboriginies and Islanders Day Observance Committee. Its origins can be traced to the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920′s which sought to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Indigenous Australians. Lend Lease is one of the companies that support NAIDOC Week by sponsoring the week and its activities.
Barangaroo South is a vital new development of Sydney’s central business district and will provide extraordinary benefits for Sydney, NSW and Australia.
SkillsOne went down to the Barangaroo construction site to find out more about the multi-billion dollar project and Lend Leases' programs to ensure employment of National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
