Mining on Groote Eylandt has delivered numerous benefits to the Anindilyakwa people however mining will not last forever. Setting clear visions and goals around how to transit from receiving mining-based income streams to developing sustainable local economies, has been the basis of recent discussion at the ALC.
The Strategic Plan, which spans 15 years, is a culmination of the thoughts, vision and articulation of the Anindilyakwa people. In the development of the plan, the community provided the ALC with three key guiding vision statements:
Our mission and vision is to
- Protect, maintain and promote Anindilyakwa culture;
- Invest in the present to build a self-sufficient future;
- And, create pathways for youth to stand in both worlds
To further understand our plans for the future, please read the Strategic Plan 2015-2027.
