Walk the Talk at Dreamtime at the G 2013
Book Walk the Talk by 23 November for your chance to walk on the MCG!
The Long Walk has offered a schools program ever since 2005 when schools invited Michael Long to speak to students about his historic walk to Canberra.
In 2010 The Long Walk created the schools’ incursion Walk the Talk to tell the story of The Long Walk, and to continue to inspire students, and a new generation of young Australians to recognise how they can make a difference.
In 2013 The Long Walk will offer all schools the opportunity to experience Walk the Talk FREE. Walk the Talk is a cultural and social program that:
• Meets the needs of the Australian National Curriculum ‘Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and cultures’ components.
• Tells the story of The Long Walk in 2004, and the continuing work of this successful charity.
• Provides a deeper understanding and appreciation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, their rich culture and their ongoing history.
• Highlights Aboriginal leaders, and other historical figures who have walked over time for great positive social change.
