The teen taking on the Govt over duty of care

Anj Sharma is a 19-year-old university student. She’s also an activist trying to change the laws of the country.
Sharma wants to make it a legal obligation for the Australian Government to consider its duty of care to future generations when making decisions about the environment.
Sharma is working with Independent Senator David Pocock to get their duty of care bill through government.
This week, the Senate is considering the merits of the bill. In today’s deep dive, TDA talks to Sharma about the legislation.
