Nyngan Indigenous Leadership Program – 17 May 2017

In May 2017, AGL had the opportunity to work with the Indigenous Concepts and Networking (ICaN) group as part of the Indigenous Leadership Program at Nyngan. The group – led by local Nathan Riley – are building a bush tucker garden at the Nyngan solar plant viewing platform, and are working with us to deliver Indigenous Leadership Programs in local schools.

In addition to speaking to kids of all ages, Nathan has also worked with the local Aboriginal Land Council and the Aboriginal Police Liaison Team to host a fun run.
