Episode Takeaways

  • Change often begins at the local level, and local representatives of your community are often the best gateways for you to voice your opinion and encourage community initiatives.
  • Cynicism often gets in the way of making real change happen. If you feel that things need to change in your local area or in your country, get involved in whatever way you can. 
  • The Mooloolaba Spit has been subject to a secret development plan which could see the public land turned into a holiday complex or skyrise building. Fiona Simpson is actively campaigning against this development in order to maintain the beauty and utility of this priceless part of Mooloolaba.
