About this episode

What are the most powerful strategies for organising and advocating in times of crisis? How do we effectively advocate for the long term when there are urgency around our sector’s needs to respond to this crisis?

In this session, we will unpack how we can build long term power that is capable of transforming our industry, our places and our work after a complex crisis. How do we build coalitions, build relationships with key stakeholders and tap into existing frameworks and narratives to make our story be the story that Australia now needs.
