Indigenous Communities Amid Crisis and Greater Parliamentary Oversight

Wednesday, 29 April 2020 - 7:00am to 8:30am

[0:00:00] Acknowledgement of Country.

[0:19:00] Nina Landsbury Hall, a researcher from the University of Queensland joins us to talk about how the COVID-19 crisis is impacting our indigenous communities in Queensland and Northern Territory. We discuss the impacts on the most remote communities in these regions and the already pre-existing issues of housing, health and hygiene that need to be addressed.

[0:47:00] Our Tram Thought for this week centres around the theme of Nature's Vengance. We discuss how the current crisis is allowing nature to heal and rebirth and whether or not we can sustain this element in our environment in a post-covid world. We dive deep into the possibility of Virtual Reality environments. Listen to find out more!

[0:00:00] Member of the Reason Party, Fiona Patten, joined with crossbenchers last week to call on greater parliamentary oversight during state actions under COVID19. Whilst the party was not successful in getting the motion they wanted, they have settled on a compromise. Fiona fills us in on the developments of the crisis and how state government is set to operate over the next few months.
