Podcast: The wellbeing economy – democratic repair in disconnected times

11 December 2020

On this episode in our special Policy Forum Pod mini-series on the wellbeing economy, Carolyn Hendriks and Millie Rooney join us to discuss how people and communities are bypassing politicians and policymakers to pursue a positive vision for Australia’s future. 

Throughout 2020, with all its trials and tribulations, many people have felt a strong sense of disconnection. But amidst this isolation, some community groups are banding together to try and tackle some of the major issues of our time. So can the broader Australian community find a path to genuine democratic repair within these examples? On the penultimate episode in our special Policy Forum Pod mini-series on the wellbeing economy, social scientist Associate Professor Carolyn Hendriks and Dr Millie Rooney from Australia reMADE join us to take a look at the future of Australian democracy. Listen here.
