This is what we’re trying to design our event to achieve. Review some more of our thoughts on the format, and chip in if you have a contribution of your own.
You may have read a bit about the background for the event. There is an energy in Adelaide at the moment. There is a feeling that we’re able to really make something of our future, to make this the place we want to live in – or maybe, that we want our kids to live in. But there’s also a tension, because so many people haven’t had a way to put this energy to use.
What options do we have actually do something, to make our city a better place? Not enough.
We want to give people opportunities to cocreate the future of Adelaide.
We aim for
- people to make solid connections and form relationships with ‘like minded’ people – people who share our visions, and a desire to do something about them
- conversations that move beyond connection, to support the emergence of collaborative initiatives
This is not just about providing opportunities to the participants as individuals. The event will strengthen community connections, and develop our collective capacity to work together to cocreate our future – supporting our ecosystem of empowered, collaborative communities.
