In this episode we hear from Councillor Jess Miller from the City of Sydney (CoS). Jess has worked with a broad range of organisations to design, lead and implement change for over a decade. She was elected to Council in 2016 and is an advocate for a slow city with lots of active and public transport, character, community, sport, colour and creativity.
We talk about COVID, food insecurity and how Council has responded, system weaknesses, climate risk, planning and policy, urban agriculture, NSW food security inquiry, building resilience, radical empathy and the Trojan horse of fun. You can find Jess on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
