The Common Ground Canberra project recently released these videos full of information on homelessness in Canberra, how a Common Ground style project would help, and featuring Mike Zissler (Chief Executive of Lifeline Canberra) doing his very own sleepout to find out a bit more about what it’s like to be homeless in this notoriously freezing city of ours (they made it over the winter). Definitely worth a watch if you have a few spare minutes.
This project has been successful all over the world, including in Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney and Hobart in Australia. It could be just what Canberra needs?
(I’m not so much an astroturfer as a lurker, but I know this community has been interested in Common Ground before so I wanted to share these with you.)
