Traditional knowledge guardianship

We have worked with many groups throughout Australia implement a practical set of tools to assist traditional knowledge holders to protect rights and interests in traditional knowledge.

Traditional knowledge includes knowledge and cultural expressions held collectively community groups and expressed in whatever form, such as in stories, ceremonies, songs and through traditional ecological practices. 

These tools are designed to make sure that traditional knowledge can be managed and governed in a way that protects these interests, and respects cultural values. It also provides some broader guidance about knowledge guardianship in the community.
