Nicolette joined Richard Denniss, Executive Director of the Australia Institute, on March 26 to discuss how dis- and misinformation undermines democracy in Australia and the power organised communities can harness by owning the narrative through established networks of trust.

Strong, active and engaged communities are an essential pillar of healthy democracy, particularly in the digital age - a time when visionary leadership and effective policy making are urgently needed to solve intergenerational issues like climate change, cost of living and the housing crisis.

We are witnessing the profound impact of the economic, socio-cultural and environmental legacy of lies from the Nemesis Era, and the emergence of Advance in the Voice Referendum campaign and more recently, the Dunkley by-election.

We know there is more to come. Empowered and organised communities are the antidote.

Thanks to the Community Independents Project for hosting this event.
