National Talkblack 140922

We had:

Kaley Nicholson and her mum Joanne, Founders of Yilam talking about how their COVID-era camping trip spurs First Nations-led outdoors business. Yilam translates as camp in Taungurung language, but can also translate as home. Nicholson said being out on Country, away from civilization, helped them make their decision to start Yilam.

Laurie Lawrence, Founder of Kids Alive do the Five talking about how water safety is just as important as road safety for parents. New research reveals 70% of Australian parents believe water safety education and swimming lessons were just as important as road safety. This comes as eight young children drowned in backyard pools or water last year, with death by drowning in swimming pools being the highest among young children.
