Trust in media has risen, although it is still the least trusted institution. 56 per cent of Australians trust non-government organisations (NGOs), up from 2018.

All of this begs an interesting question about the role of schools and education in building personal capacity to prosper in coming years, and cultivating trust reflexes for us both individually, and as a society. Where does trust germinate? 

We know education is a huge contributor to the creation of informed adults with informational and relationship literacies. The persistent trust crisis suggests their role is more critical than ever. How might they help us rebuild trust in each other and our society?
