Public Housing, Eco-villages creations and Aboriginal health

Wednesday, 15 July 2020 - 7:00am to 8:30am

[14:30] In light of the recent lockdowns in Melbourne’s public housing towers, David Kelly – a research fellow at the Centre for Urban Research, RMIT – explains the historical factors that have led to our current shortfall. He details the history of Melbourne’s policies, the successes in the past, and what directions we should take into the future.  


[31:23] As a bit of a reprieve, Eiddwen and Rob world-build and imagine – what would their ideal eco-village look like? They discuss its environmental foundations, how the society could be governed and whether there are viable alternatives to trading with money.


[59:07] Following on from a conversation held by the Australian Institute looking into the Aboriginal-led health response to the coronavirus, we speak to Tracey chief executive officer of Derbarl Yerrigan Health Service in WA on to discuss COVID19 and success of community response.
