Supporting the Next Generation

A partnership with the Ichthys LNG Project in Australia has enabled Darwin’s only youth center to expand its operational hours and services and to recruit new mentors. Operated by Australian Red Cross, “The SHAK” provides a safe and creative space for more than 300 young people to enjoy outside of school hours. More than 35 community groups use the facility to run youth education, training and recreational programs and initiatives with the aim of improving employment, health and the wellbeing of young Territorians, particularly the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth who make up 95% of SHAK participants.

Handing Down Traditional Weaving Techniques

At the Abadi LNG Project in Indonesia, INPEX is conducting training for local residents with the objective of preserving, passing down, and promoting the dissemination of ikat, traditional woven clothes from the Tanimbar Islands in Maluku Province.

Generating Social and Environmental Outcomes

The Ichthys LNG Project in Australia has finalized agreements with the Indigenous Land Corporation to deliver a $34 million savanna fire management program in the Northern Territory, Australia, as part of the Project’s voluntary environmental and social offset commitments. Consistent with traditional Aboriginal land conservation practices, savanna fire management is a recognized carbon abatement methodology.
The program will fund the development, establishment, and operation of individual fire management projects which will provide opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in remote communities by creating jobs, generating sustainable income benefits and protecting cultural and environmental values.
