Integrated Sustainability Analysis (ISA) group and the Sydney Institute for Astronomy (SIfA) have won the Innovation Award for the OAASIS project at the 2023 Anti-Slavery Freedom Awards.
Slavery is far from an issue of the past, with nearly 50 million people across the world living in conditions of modern slavery on any given day. The Global Slavery Index estimates 15,000 of these people are within Australia. Modern slavery can take many forms, for example, human trafficking, forced labour, debt bondage, and domestic servitude.
The Anti-Slavery Australia Freedom Awards are an opportunity to publicly recognise the vital contributions of individuals, organisations and businesses that are working to combat modern slavery and support survivors in Australia.
