We had:

Meredith Burgmann, President of the New South Wales Legislative Council, talking about winners announced for 29th Annual Ernies Awards for Sexism. The ‘Ernies’, are Australian awards for comments deemed misogynistic.

Donna Green, Environmental Scientist talking about tracking health and climate change report. Action to minimise, and adapt to, the effects of climate change is a critical policy imperative. The health and wellbeing of Australia’s current and future citizens depend on policy decisions being made now. The Medical Journal of Australia–Lancet Countdown on health and climate change in Australia produces an annual assessment of progress on health and climate change in Australia. This year’s report highlights the increasing exposure and vulnerability of Australians to excess heat, which is already limiting our way of life, decreasing work productivity and disproportionally threatening the wellbeing of Indigenous Australians.

Paul Silva, David Dungay Jr’s nephew, talking about Amazon Prime Video and LADbible Australia Announces new Exclusive Investigative Documentary Series UNHEARD, Giving Voices to the Victims of Racial Injustice in Australia. The first documentary series will launch on Prime Video in Australia, USA, United Kingdom, Canada, South Africa, and New Zealand on October 29, with the first two episodes free to stream on

Federal Leichhardt Warren Entsch MP, talking about a way forward. The Northern Australia Committee has tabled the final report of its Inquiry into the destruction of 46,000 year old caves at the Juukan Gorge in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The final report titled, A Way Forward, emphasises that what happened at Juukan Gorge is not unique. It is an extreme example of the destruction of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural heritage which continues to happen in this country. Hon Warren Entsch MP, Chair said, ‘The destruction of the caves was a disaster beyond reckoning for the Puutu Kunti Kurrama People and Pinikura people, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural heritage as a whole.
