Northern Territory Anti-Discrimination Commission 2006/2007 Annual Report 38 Vision for 2007-2008 The Public Education Unit works towards achieving the following objectives: Working with the private sector to spread the message about discrimination, harassment and bullying; Providing training programs in remote NT (this has begun with work on three outback stations); Developing links with Indigenous communities in order to present the information to persons living on communities; Developing a new partnership with the Top End Division of General Practice, planning and implementing programs for people in four Arnhem Land communities; Building an alliance with the Islamic community to produce materials for the next Fair Go newsletter, focussed on human rights issues for Muslims in the NT; Upgrading the web site to be more interactive; Converting the Indigenous language videos to DVD and then disseminating them to communities; Using the results from an on-line survey to guide directions in public education and training; Developing public education events in line with International days of celebration; and Developing a program for discrimination education in schools. Each of these strategies will be reported on in the next annual report. Harassment Free Sports Strategy The Australian Council of Human Rights Agencies (ACHRA) and the National Standing Committee on Recreation and Sport have endorsed the ongoing development and promotion of the Play by the Rules website. This includes a shared commitment of resources and staffing between the State and Territory Equal Opportunity and Anti-Discrimination Commissions and the Federal, State and Territory Sports and Recreation offices. The Commission is represented on the national management committee. This recognises that the Northern Territory Office of Sports and Recreation and AntiDiscrimination Commission staff work closely together to implement and promote harassment free sport right across the Territory. Training to Member Protection Information Officers (MPIO) was offered during 20062007. The MPIO provides confidential information and support for the person alleging harassment. Most complaints are effectively resolved at this level. Play by the Rules website: www.playbytherules.com.au
