It’s no secret that young people are facing tough times. A changing climate, high house prices, and declining real
wages risk leaving a generation worse off than their parents. Is this something that governments can change? What can policy makers do to ensure that young Australians thrive?

Join Grattan Institute CEO Danielle Wood, and reimagine the future of education, housing, and climate policy in shaping a better Australia for the next generation.

Danielle is an Honorary Fellow and former President of the Economic Society of Australia, Research Fellow of the Women’s Leadership Institute and co-founder and first Chair of the Women in Economics Network.
