What a day!
I had the privilege of being invited to design and facilitate the Community Forum on Monday 22nd September at NERAM in Armidale. And what a day it was! Over 100 representatives of a very broad cross section of the New England community working together to lay the foundations for a sustainable region transition strategy.
I was impressed by energy and good-humored passion that the participants brought to the work we did that day. And it was a great experience for me personally. This kind of community co-learning process always is. So, congratulations to everyone who contributed to the planning and preparation of the day and for all that was achieved there.
Thanks for the opportunity to contribute. I wish you well and look forward to keeping in touch with your project as it unfolds over the weeks and months ahead.
I'm also deeply involved in a similar process here in the Northern Rivers. We're in the final stages of getting sign-off from a dozen regional peak bodies who are committing themselves to a Climate Change Collaboration Agreement. The first major initiative arising from this agreement will be Sustain Northern Rivers — a community engagement process that will culminate in the adoption of agreed climate change action priorities for the region.
