DKA is committed to renewable energy, desert leadership, digital innovation and the Desert Knowledge Precinct. These focus areas are highly relevant to business in Alice Springs, which allowed DKA to use OBM to build connections with the Alice Springs community and share our programs and projects in these areas.
