A Melbourne school has signed up to pilot Australia21’s Smarter About Drugs Conversation Pack to engage its students in open and informed discussions about illicit drugs and the policies that guide Australia’s response to them. In other developments this month, the Making the Future Work project has been awarded $10,000 grant, there’s been a major shift on PTSD and we give you a sneak preview of our soon-to-be released Algal Farming report.
We believe the best way to tackle flawed or ineffective public policies is providing evidence that supports the case for change: givenow.com.au/australia21.
