Driving systemic changes to Australia's (in)justice system
Australia's justice system is far from just. With children as young as 10 being locked up, and 5 Indigenous Australians dying in policy custody in the last 5 weeks, it's a human rights crisis we need to talk about- and fix. In this episode, Tiyana dives into the key issues with Australia's justice system and how they unfairly target/affect our Indigenous communities, and how changemakers can demand solutions that will drive systemic change on this issue.  ABC's Australia's Shame: https://www.abc.net.au/4corners/australias-shame-promo/7649462 ABC's Inside The Watch House: https://www.abc.net.au/4corners/inside-the-watch-house/11108448 Amnesty International Australia Interview: https://www.facebook.com/AmnestyOz/videos/1353304624825168 Our framework for social change: https://humanitarianchangemakers.net/change Get a FREE Skillshare Premium Trial: https://humanitarianchangemakers.net/skillshare/ If you have a question about making change happen, leave us a message at https://humanitarianchangemakers.net/podcast No question is too big or small: we can help you with anything from breaking into the social change sector, questions about specific topics or issues you don’t quite understand, or advice for how you can take action to make a difference in the world.

It's a CONSPIRA-SEA: why oceans matter for social change
We are talking about something a little different in this episode: the OCEAN. We don't often think about the oceans when we think about social change, but the oceans are an incredibly important part of not only our natural world, but our social world, and thus, we can't talk about positive social change without talking about positive changes for the ocean and the way we interact with ocean ecosystems.

Effective Conversation Skills for Social Change

Voluntourism: more harm than good?
“Before covid hit I was planning a volunteer trip abroad in South America, since I can’t go I’ve been looking in to it more and I’m starting to question if these trips are legit or not.

Should I become an activist?
“With everything that’s been happening in the world, I went to my first ever protest recently for the black lives matter movement. I’ve always admired people who do activism, but a lot of people in my life tend to label activists as left-wing extremists, and they think that activists are all unemployed people who have nothing better to do with their time then complain. Before I get further involved I want to know why activism is important?” If you have a question about making change happen, leave us a message at https://anchor.fm/humanitarianchangemakers or head to https://humanitarianchangemakers.net/podcast No question is too big or small: we can help you with anything from breaking into the social change sector, questions about specific topics or issues you don’t quite understand, or advice for how you can take action to make a difference in the world.
