Territorians are being called on to take part in a new survey to understand what makes a good life in the NT.

The survey – called My Territory Connections – is being run by Charles Darwin University (CDU) and will see researchers from CDU’s Northern Institute survey residents from both major hubs and remote areas, from new to long time residents, Indigenous and non-Indigenous.

They are hoping to understand the connections that Territorians have with family, neighbours and the attachments to their place.

CAAMA’s Philippe Perez headed to the CDU Alice Springs campus to speak to CDU Northern Institute Research Associate Fiona Shalley about the survey.

Those wanting to complete the survey can do so at myterritoryconnections.cdu.edu.au

He also spoke with CDU’s Vice-Chancellor Professor Scott Bowman and CDU’s Associate Vice-Chancellor for Central Australia Jay Walker about some of the ways CDU can help with further education for those living in Central Australia and remote communities.
