The Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS) and UnitingCare Australia have called on the Federal Government to make more investments in services that will improve social disadvantage, following the release of Friday’s Economic Statement.

UnitingCare Australia National Director Lin Hatfield Dodds said Australia could afford a strong social-economic framework that supports individuals, families and communities.

“The Australian economy is in good shape and, as a nation, we can afford to provide the services that matter – for all, and for the most vulnerable,” she said.

Many Australians were glad to hear that their government was taking measures to increase saving in the country by trying to decrease social disadvantages by making investments in services that will improve that problem. Many were really disappointed and angered when the government cut the budget aid.

Australia's Largest Botanic Garden: Biodiversity and Sustainability in the Public Realm

Australia's Largest Botanic Garden: Biodiversity and Sustainability in the Public Realm | Australian-Oceania and Europe | Scoop.it

In a former sand quarry, a new botanic garden has been completed, one that allows visitors to follow a metaphorical journey of water through the Australian landscape, from the desert to the coastal fringe.

Via the artistry of landscape architecture, this integrated landscape brings together horticulture, architecture, ecology, and art to create the largest botanic garden devoted to Australian flora. It seeks, through the design of themed experiences, to inspire visitors to see our plants in new ways.

The project's completion comes at a time when Botanic Gardens world-wide are questioning existing research and recreational paradigms to address landscape conservation and a renewed interest in meaningful visitor engagement...

Bridgett and Sheila 's insight:

This botanical garden shows the landscape of Australia and how they have managed to bring all the plant life throughout Australia into it whether or not they really grow there. This is a form off art and inventions because they have found a way to bring it all in together and give people a nice tour through a small scale Australia.

Jemma Tanner's curator insight, October 27, 2013 7:35 AM

The reason I decided to scoop this this article was because it involves learning areas to do with Australia's landscape as well as gives the opportunity for students to practically and rationally design a solution to a problem. For example, you could pose a problem environment to the class in which they have to fix within certain restrictions. This could be lowered for younger levels by choosing one area of focus.

This article relates to religion is Australia and Oceania.

 

It is confirmed that Christianity is in trouble because in all these years it hasn't been truly Australianised.

delaneygrimes-sarahmcfadyen's comment, October 4, 2013 11:51 AM
This article is connected to the religion because it states all the the unbalanced qualities of Australia's church and religious beliefs. They are still under determination of establishing a church in Australia and the only thing stopping them is section 116 in the legislative branch. Australia is unlike many in their category of religion, religious beliefs, and their practices

This article is connected to "religion" because it states all the the unbalanced qualities of Australia's church and religious beliefs. They are still under determination of establishing a church in Australia and the only thing stopping them is section 116 in the legislative branch. Australia is unlike many in their category of religion, religious beliefs, and their practices.

A married Indian couple have won the right to stay in Australia, for now, after seeking refugee status claiming they might be killed if they returned to India as they are from different castes.
