We've recently changed the audio format for our live stream in order to improve the quality and to support more devices and services such as iHeartRadio.
Unfortunately, this means we can no longer support Internet Explorer for listening to our live stream as it does not support the new format. Please see our Streaming Guide for alternative ways to listen to our live stream on your computer, mobile or smart speaker devices.

On Friday 10,000 people marched through the streets of Perth’s CBD, calling for genuine action on climate by both state and federal governments. The striking school students are the local chapter of a global movement of young people unimpressed by decades of indecision and business-as-usual planning, that pays lip service to rising temperatures, vague emission targets, and corporate influence over democratic processes. The Understorey team joined the march to hear from the young students themselves, and those who supported them, on this historic day of action, their words joining others and echoing around the world.
