Below are links to Croakey-related presentations at the recent Public Health Association of Australia conference.
The first presentation suggested the public health sector engage with the reinvention and transformation of public interest journalism (PIJ), through:
- supporting policy and law reform to enable PIJ to survive – and flourish
- incorporating PIJ into public health frameworks – eg models of SDOH, health impact assessments, and health literacy – and into public health research, teaching and practice, including advocacy and policy development
- contributing to new models for public interest journalism, including the emerging not for profit sector.
It was timely to be presenting during the week the ABC imploded, and as a new Grattan Institute report, Who’s in the room? Access and influence in Australian politics, highlighted the importance of a strong public interest journalism sector for accountability and healthy democracy, as per the extracts below:

It was perfect to present about #CroakeyGO during a tabletop presentation – having ten minutes to present to small groups at several different tables. Perfect because it was fun, intimate and enabled conversations – just like a #CroakeyGO.
The crux of the presentation is that we have spent the past 18 months developing the #CroakeyGO concept, and are now working up a business model to enable us to roll this out more widely.
If you are interested in hosting a #CroakeyGO, please get in touch (and if in Sydney this Saturday, 13 October, please join us in some walking journalism from Marrickville to UTS).
