This article, with its thematic maps, falls under the Area/Geography category. The series of 8 maps offer insight to the lives of African citizens and the poverty that most people there suffer from. Some of the maps depict internet usage - which is sparse, and another shows water availability, which is dangerously low.

Ingunn Ås's curator insight, November 16, 2014 9:26 AM

The inhabitants of Australia consist of a melting pot of old traditions and new influences and impulses. The country has a huge amount of different cultures and people from various countries.  There are actually spoken as much as 200 different languanges. After 1945, there was a flow of imigrants who arrived Australia. Mostly europeans due to the war, and eventually also people from the  Asia-Pacific region, The Middle-East and Africa. This made the population go from 7 million inhabitants to todays nearly 23 million. The mix of so many various cultures has made a huge impact on Australia, and has enriched it's culture to a large extent.

 

This article affect my view on Australia in a really positive way. It seems like a quite good country to live in. My impression is that all of the different cultures are accepted as a part of Australia, and that different people having different views and religions are respected. The fact that other languages than english are valued as well, may also help to maintain the wold's linguistic diversity.

The National Best Practice in Indigenous Cultural Competence in Australian Universities | Antarctica, Australia, and Oceania | Scoop.it

The findings of the literature review, the stocktake of practice both in Australia and overseas and the four pilot projects have informed the creation of a set of five Guiding Principles for Indigenous Cultural Competency:

Indigenous people should be actively involved in university governance and management.
  All graduates of Australian universities will have the knowledge and skills necessary to interact in a culturally competent way with Indigenous communities.
  University research will be conducted in a culturally competent way in partnership with Indigenous participants.
  Indigenous staffing will be increased at all appointment levels and, for academic staff, across a wider variety of academic fields.
  Universities will operate in partnership with their Indigenous communities and will help disseminate culturally competent practices to the wider community.
