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.

Dr Marina Lewis is a social ecologist researching the best ways to transition from the climate emergency (and our numerous other environmental crises) to a healthier way of being. Building on the WHO's Ottawa Charter, a public health approach worthy of every environmental campaigner's list, Dr Lewis spoke to eighteen prominent social and environmental leaders in Australia engaged in this transition to find out ways to bring greater consciousness of our human-ecological inextricability. This time Understorey hears how children need more time in nature, and how a sensitivity to the ubiquitous sentience of life may be an important quality for each and all of us to develop, if we are to face the environmental challenges squarely.

In ecology, the understorey grows where light shines through the forest canopy.
Our award-winning Understorey journalists highlight local and globally-connected environmental issues that the other media commonly pass over.
RTRFM’s long-running dedicated environment program makers Adrian Glamorgan and Elizabeth PO’ bring together stories from near and sometimes afar, whether it be conservationists rehabilitating habitat, citizen scientists gathering data, campaigners at the frontline, or decision-makers at their desks, seeking solutions together to the challenges affecting our shared air, water, land and life processes.
