HYBRID - ONLINE AND IN PERSON OPTIONS
Australian parents have experienced extraordinary challenges over the last 12-18 months. The pandemic has highlighted the cracks in Australia’s system of support for parents, it has also shown us change is possible. In 2020 parents briefly experienced the previously unimaginable, free childcare!
In April 2012, UniSA Business Emeritus Professor, Professor Barbara Pocock, and former UniSA Research Fellows, Natalie Skinner and Philippa (Pip) Williams, published Time Bomb. The books asks, “What is it costing Australians to try and do it all? And what is it costing our families and communities? Incisive and thought provoking, Time Bomb throws light on poor urban planning, workplace laws and practices, care obligations and other issues that rob us of time and put our households under pressure. And it looks at how work affects our response to the greatest concern of our time – our environmental challenges.
In this session, we discuss what has changed and what has to change to support parents to not just survive, but thrive.
