National Reconciliation Week 2024 at ANU

#NRW2024 – NOW MORE THAN EVER 

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is an annual observance from 27 May to 3 June. It is a time for all Australians to reflect on Indigenous histories, cultures and achievements and to consider how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation. The University believes we all have a role to play in reconciliation and seeks to foster and engagement with important conversations about reconciliation. 

The NRW theme for 2024, Now More Than Ever, is a reminder that no matter what, the fight for justice and the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people will – and must – continue.  

Explore achievements, opportunities and events at ANU this NRW.
