The Australian Constitution is certainly in the spotlight with a referendum to be held later this year. From Thursday 29 June, and up to referendum day, a range of constitutional-neutral e-learning materials will be streamed fortnightly accompanied by animations. The aim is to engage Australians and enhance their understanding of Australia’s democratic systems, the Constitution, and voting generally. Watch the promotion animation and join the program:
