Acknowledgement to Country

We live on lutruwita (Tasmania) Aboriginal land, sea and waterways. I acknowledge, with deep respect the traditional owners of this land, the palawa people. The palawa people belong to the oldest continuing culture in the world. They cared and protected Country for thousands of years. They knew this land, they lived on the land and they died on these lands. We honour them. For many years the palawa people referred to this land as palanwina lurini kanamaluka meaning ‘the town near river Tamar’. We acknowledge that it is a privilege to stand on Country and walk in the footsteps of those before us. Along the river banks, among the gums and seas that continue to run through the veins of the Tasmanian Aboriginal community. We pay our respects to elders past and present and to the many Aboriginal people that did not make elder status and to the Tasmanian Aboriginal community that continue to care for Country. We recognise a history of truth which acknowledges the impacts of invasion and colonisation upon Aboriginal people resulting in the genocide and forcible removal from their lands. Our Island is deeply unique, with spectacular landscapes with our cities and towns surrounded by bushland, wilderness, mountain ranges and beaches. We stand for a future that profoundly respects and acknowledges Aboriginal perspectives, culture, language and history. And a continued effort to fight for Aboriginal justice and rights paving the way for a strong future.

Metro Bus Greencard

The University of Tasmania, Tasmanian University Union State Council and Metro Tasmania are working together to encourage students to save money, fight congestion, and travel sustainably by using public transport across the state. Former TUU President Sharifah Syed-Rohan notes the bus is a better transport option for students as they are often cheaper and easier than car travel when expenses like petrol, maintenance and parking are factored in.

The University’s Sustainable Transport Strategy 2017-2021 has involved installing e- bike, motorcycle and car charging stations, cycling infrastructure like secure storage, repair stations and changing facilities and bus stop shelters at all campus stops. The University of Tasmania is committed to supporting a range of transport options, including active and public transport, available for our staff, students and visitors.
