Todays' show was a revisit to an earlier show I did with Mount St Benedict students Future Problem Solving Team talking about the language used around Asylum Seekers and Refugees. Since seeing them they have been interviewed by UN Youth, they have presented their projected at the Beecroft Forum Dinner where they met Matt Tinkler CEO of Save the Children and Ben Doherty from the Guardian. They have so much to share and this interview gives a snapshot of their infectious passion. How do they keep their passion and do they have a self care routine to support themselves to maintain their dedication to advocacy?
Our topic is all about the media and politicians and how their language is manipulating the Australian public, so we didn't want to manipulate people by saying you can't say these words, we just wanted to give them our information and let them choose their own opinions.
