We had:

Johnny Wilson, Chair of Nurrdalinji Aboriginal Corporation talking about Larrimah could become Australia’s next resources boom town but residents are on the fence. Imperial Oil and Gas, a subsidiary of Empire Energy, has proposals to drill six exploration wells on the edge of the town to tap into the Northern Territory’s gas-rich Beetaloo Basin.

Taliqua Clancy, Australian Volleyball Olympian talking about boosting Indigenous voice on Athlete’s Commission. Taliqua Clancy has been appointed to the Australian Olympic Committee Athletes’ Commission. Clancy said it was an honour to be appointed to the Commission.

Judy Cheung-Wood Founder and MD of SkinB5 talking about a quarter of young Aussies bullied because of their skin. Young Aussies have the highest prevalence of mental illness than any other age group, and new research reveals the pressure to look a certain way is mounting, with a staggering 95% feeling self-conscious and almost one in two feeling depressed because of their skin.
