Remaking Australia, part four: Miriam Lyons

In a special post-election series, Crikey asked leading Australian thinkers to sketch a blueprint for a future Australia. Today, Miriam Lyons, Director of the Centre for Policy Development, takes a look at remaking Australian culture, for want of a smaller topic.

As the election hangover fades and a new government packs itself into Parliament House, we have a chance to remake the nation for a new century. In a special post-election series, Crikey asked leading Australian thinkers to sketch a blueprint for a future Australia. Their brief: to spell out how Australia might fully realise its potential.

On Tuesday, renowned social commentator Eva Cox wrote on social justice. Author David Lindenmayer from the Fenner School of the Environment & Society at The Australian National University pointed out opportunities for the new Rudd government on the environment on Wednesday, with sociologist John Carroll yesterday looking at Australia's place in the world.

    What an excellent article, it really gets to the heart of the matter. Climate change is a wonderful opportunity for human beings as a whole to start working together, its urgent and it matters

    Well done and thanks. What a great idea to leverage the imminent environmental challenges as a way to building a better Australian culture.
