Young Political Enthusiast and Changemaker Launches Australian Political Podcast
Young Australian of the Year Finalist for ACT 2017, Caterina Sullivan, has today launched a new political podcast focused on engaging Australians, especially young Australians in the political discourse.
The podcast, Politics Done Differently, will feature guest politicians from across the country from a federal, state and local level of government to discuss the importance of voter engagement in politics and how politicians can ensure that communication around political decision-making is effective, transparent and accurate.
“I’ve always been able to see the impact that politics makes on people’s everyday lives,” Ms Sullivan explained. “In talking to my friends, peers and colleagues, I have realised that there are a few barriers for entry into this world of exciting politics. One of them is knowledge.”
Politics Done Differently describes itself as a “no-frills” political podcast, taking away some of the inaccessible jargon and getting down to the facts. “It’s important that we can connect with as much of the voting population as possible. It’s time to remove the fluff from politics and get down to business - what is going to create a better future for Australia economically, socially and environmentally?” Ms Sullivan explains.
Ms Sullivan has worked across the globe to promote the United Nations’ Global Goals for Sustainable Development. She first began working in Parliament House in Canberra to promote the Global Goals and has made a lot of her political connections through her role as CEO of the Global Goals Australia Campaign.
Ms Sullivan will be sharing podcasts weekly as of next year leading up to the 2019 federal election.
