Important role of youths and their relationship with politics

As you may be aware, Deputy Speaker, this week marks National Youth Week in South Australia, with the theme Our Voice—Our Future. Firstly, I would like to thank and congratulate 2021 Young Australian of the Year Isobel Marshall who cofounded Taboo with school friend Eloise Hall on their role in breaking down stigma around menstruation and providing greater access to hygiene products.

Protection of Heritage Places

5 May 2021

Mr DULUK (Waite) (10:33): I move:

That this bill be now read a second time.

I know you love and protect heritage, Mr Speaker, as all of us do in this House. We all appreciate and understand the significance, opportunity and importance of protecting heritage not only the natural environment and the heritage built up over some 60,000 years of Indigenous culture in Australia but also our built heritage and the important role that built heritage plays in the fabric of our communities, our suburbs, our towns and our state.

There are many benefits to the preservation of heritage, from the aesthetics and character that historic places contribute to our suburbs to the immense economic and social benefits derived from built heritage. You only have to look at the old towns of many of the cities of Europe that attract hundreds of thousands of tourists every year, from Rome to Paris to Kraków to parts of old London, where people walk the streets admiring the centuries of built heritage and travel every year to do so, providing much economic benefit to those cities.
