ICEA's Overarching purpose is to achieve reconciliation through mutual respect for all Australians.
According to Reconciliation Australia, the majority of young Australians (81%) have a strong desire to advance reconciliation, but less than half know how to go about it.
We believe that to facilitate truly genuine reconciliation and mutual respect, it is important to work with both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal youth together. For this reason, our programs don’t solely focus on one or the other group, but instead bring Western Australian youth together.
Our philosophy is that everyone undergoes his or her own reconciliation learning journey, or ‘Kuditjiny’ ('journey of attaining more knowledge' in Noongar). Our actions are driven by the belief that we can support this journey through:
Facilitating positive experiences
Building strong, genuine relationships
Fostering greater cross-cultural understanding
These form our three pillar philosophy, which underpins our day-to-day operations and the evolution of our programs. We have a range of programs that you can get involved in – taking place everywhere from high schools across the state, to Perth beaches, to remote parts of the Kimberley:
