About this event

Join NENA’s Democracy and Governance Hub, for an important discussion about the role of Citizen’s Assemblies in building a stronger society, and supporting the new economy.


** Aimee Mehan is a Gamillaroi-Irish Australian living on Wannarua Country, with experience and education in retail, classical music & theatre, government service, bush foods & permaculture, and business innovation. “Yaama!” She will be talking about democracy and Indigenous practices.

** Sonia Randhawa migrated to Melbourne just over a decade ago from Malaysia, living on Wurundjeri land. Currently, she is working with both the Coalition of Everyone, as a co-founder, and the Sortition Foundation, to build a politics of hope and dispel the politics of fear.

** Nerida Thompson lives on Wurundjeri land, and was a passionate primary school teacher before becoming a mum. She now spends a lot of her time on climate activism with a focus on her local community, wanting to empower people by building their connections, skills awareness and resilience. She will be talking about a citizens’ assembly she is helping to organise in Moreland, on local post-COVID recovery.

** Facilitated by Dr Michelle Maloney, NENA Co-Founder and Director
