    Epilogue

    In this epilogue to Season 1 of The Long View, Clare reflects on the insights gleaned and themes emerging from her conversations with 34 of Australia's leading voices and big thinkers about what COVID-19 - and our response to it - might mean for the future of our country.

    Episode 17 - The Other Crisis

    Episode 17 - The Other Crisis

    In the final episode of Season 1, Clare is joined by two long term thinkers for a surprisingly hopeful look into how COVID might affect the climate change discourse: Rebecca Huntley, one of Australia's foremost social researchers, and the author of 'How To Talk About Climate Change In a Way that Makes a Difference'; and Anna Skarbek, CEO of ClimateWorks Australia, and a founding director of the Clean Energy Finance Corporation.

    Australia and the world currently face two catastrophic crises, and yet one has seen the total focus of governments while the other has not. COVID and climate change share many similarities-the threat of severe suffering and major economic consequences, the need for collaboration and change. So what have we learned from this one? What should we learn? And how do we make sure climate change action underpins all our goals as we work to rebuild and grow the Australian economy?

    Episode 16 - First Nations

    Episode 16 - First Nations

    In this episode of The Long View, Clare is joined by two inspirational Aboriginal leaders: Linda Burney, a proud member of the Wiradjuri nation who became the first Aboriginal woman to serve in the Australian House of Representatives, and Inala Cooper, a Yawuru woman who serves as the Director of Murrup Barak, the Melbourne Institute for Indigenous Development at University of Melbourne.

    COVID-19 has been accompanied by massive social upheaval, with Black Lives Matter bringing about what appears to be a fundamental shift in the way this country thinks and talks about Indigenous affairs. Yet we still have no clear path forward on the Uluru Statement, and very little progress on the now changing Closing the Gap targets. So what does the future look like for this movement, and what needs to change? Linda and Inala share their hard-won and heartfelt insights on Black Lives Matter, activism vs pragmatism, compromise, disappointment, and what they need from allies who want to walk alongside them.

    Episode 15 - Skills and Education

    Episode 15 - Skills and Education

    In this episode of The Long View, Clare looks at skills, vocational education and training with two skills experts: John Daley, former head of the Grattan Institute and now senior fellow at Grattan with a special focus on skills and education; and Megan Lilly, head of workforce development at the Australian Industry Group, the peak body for Australian industry.

    It's clear that Australia's VET system isn't where it should be, with skills coming up again and again throughout this season. Businesses need more workers with better skills, young people need more guidance, and governments need to step up. COVID-19 presents both threats and opportunities: with unemployment skyrocketing and skilled migration now on hold, what are we going to do to retrain and re-skill our workforce? How can we ensure our training system is giving graduates the skills they need? Why is quality so low, and non-completion rates so high? And why on earth hasn't this been fixed already?

    Episode 14 - The Future of Work

    Episode 14 - The Future of Work

    In this episode of The Long View, Clare chats with two future of work experts: Amit Singh, former head of global policy at Uber and a former economics adviser to Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard, now at AlphaBeta consultancy; and Dr Jim Stanford, director of the Australia Institute's Centre for Future Work and founder of the Progressive Economics Forum.

    The future of work has come hurtling towards us faster than we could have imagined due to COVID-19, with vast numbers of Australians now working from home, travelling less and adopting platforms like Zoom throughout their working lives. But what else have we learned about our working future from this crisis, and what existing problems is it time to start addressing?

    How do we get Australians dignified, secure work that supports them throughout their lives? Are the gig economy and other so-called innovations the end of work as we know it, or are they just capital, finding another clever way to deprive workers of their hard-won rights? And are robots really going to steal our jobs?

    Episode 13 - Domestic Abuse

    Episode 13 - Domestic Abuse

    This week, Clare is joined by Jess Hill, award-winning author of "See What You Made Me Do", in an open and frank conversation about domestic abuse.

    During COVID, Australians have been forced to stay in their homes. But for some Australian women, home is the most dangerous place they could be.

    Seven Australians have been killed by domestic terrorism in the last decade. Eight Australian women were killed by their current or former partner in May, this year alone.

    For everything you have heard about the fight against domestic abuse in the last five years, this problem is growing in severity and frequency.

    Why?

    Why do men use violence against women they say they love?

    Why aren't we doing a better job of keeping women and children safe, when this is the biggest community safety problem in our country?

    How can we talk about domestic abuse in a way that will bring men to the table?

    And, why the hell isn't this problem getting the enduring national attention it deserves?

    Join us for this really important discussion, and hear more about what we could change to make Australia a safer place for women and children.
