  • Elena Jeffcoat grew up in Central QLD.  She lived for a time in the U.K. and Greece between attempts at University degrees, but eventually completed a B. Econ. at UQ. She believes that there is no better investment a government can make than in the education of its citizens.

What will you ask her on Q&A?

      

  • NAURU KIDS – MORAL LEADERSHIP
Being 15, it is extremely concerning to be in a country that can condone the suffering and mental torture of fellow 15-year-old’s, asylum seekers. Where is the moral leadership that needs to be shown? It is hard to be proud of a country whose government does not seem to possess a moral compass on these issues.

  • DISABILITY INVISIBLE
As a young Australian with a disability who has and wants to continue having a career in the arts, it is difficult to not notice that disabilities are almost non-existent in modern media. It is hard to try to find a role model or a character to truly relate to when they just don't exist. I have performed as the lead in a professional dance theatre production at the start of this year and there is nothing better than seeing another disabled teenager seeing someone like them on stage. There is a phrase – “You can't be what you can't see”. I was wondering what kind of role the Australian government could have in opening up new avenues for disabled performers in the media?

  • BUSHFIRES & CLIMATE
In March this year we saw a bushfire tear through our town, Tathra, fanned by extreme weather conditions and in August we had another out control bushfire burning to the west of Tathra. We have just seen our elected prime minister ousted by the conservative right who don’t want action on climate change. When will we finally get politicians who will act for our future and take meaningful action on climate change?

  • ENVOY ABBOTT
Scott Morrison has given Tony Abbott the position of Indigenous Affairs envoy. Mr Abbott says the job is about getting young Indigenous people into school. How do you think he should go about this?

  • EDUCATION – INDIGENOUS AFFAIRS SHOULD BE MANDATORY
Education is an important aspect of understanding the diversity of our country and the shared history of our nation. Do you believe that telling the truth of our shared history as a nation, including the history from a First Nations perspective should be made mandatory for all students at all levels? That Aboriginal Studies should be a mandatory subject for all students within Government and non-Government schools?

  • SOCIAL CONSERVATIVE PM (SOCON SCOMO?)
Given Scott Morrison's recent comments on conversion therapy, the building respectful relationships program, and so-called 'gender whisperers' in schools, do you think that having a socially-conservative Prime Minister will affect the dialogue around topics like LGBT+ rights in Australia?

  • ROTATING PRIME MINISTERS
Two weeks ago we saw another Prime Minister elected by voters but toppled by his party. Five prime ministers in ten years. Considering most of the people in this room probably haven't really known a Prime Minister for more than a few years, how can we be expected not to feel disenchanted with democracy when we come to voting age?

  • PARLIAMENTARY BULLIES
Do the panellists think that the currently protected bullies within our Parliament should be named and shamed to the public?

  • PARLIAMENTARY BULLIES
From the bullying claims made by Julie Bishop and Julia Banks, it’s clear the future for girls going into politics, regardless of which party, seems bleak. Can the government work towards a better system that encourages and protects women in politics, or should women just deal with harassment as part of the job?

  • SERENA
The recent controversy over Serena Williams loss to Naomi Osaka has sparked debates over sexism within the sporting industry and the integrity of umpiring. Do you believe that Serena Williams was in the moral wrong or right with her comments regarding the game?
