Com­pa­ny Direc­tor Mag­a­zine, the mem­ber mag­a­zine of the pres­ti­gious Aus­tralian Insti­tute of Com­pa­ny Direc­tors, has cel­e­brat­ed the unique knowl­edge and inno­va­tion of the desert in a new arti­cle called Learn­ing from the Desert’. Alice Springs is described as a place where ancient and mod­ern merge with a focus on deep­en­ing our knowl­edge of Australia’s desert heart­land, build­ing on Indige­nous strengths and devel­op­ing renew­able tech­nolo­gies.” DKA and the DKA Solar Cen­tre, Pur­ple House, Par­rtji­ma — A Fes­ti­val in Light are pro­filed in the arti­cle which cel­e­brates desert inno­va­tors and changemakers.

Guid­ed by our FY19 — FY21 strat­e­gy, DKA is focused on desert lead­er­ship, dig­i­tal inno­va­tion, desert research, renew­able ener­gy, and devel­op­ing the Desert Knowl­edge Precinct. DKA CEO Lau­ren Gan­ley is enthu­si­as­tic about seiz­ing col­lab­o­ra­tive oppor­tu­ni­ties. There’s so much resilience and knowl­edge in the desert and remote Aus­tralia, and we can mobilise those strengths to sup­port the socioe­co­nom­ic devel­op­ment of Cen­tral Aus­tralia,” she says.
