Community forum registration
Work continues in South Gippsland to create our Community Vision 2040. The project gives you the opportunity to inform what South Gippsland will look like in 2040, including the potential challenges and opportunities that may be faced then and along the way.
So far, this work has included an online survey, community pop-ups across South Gippsland, and the opportunity to participate in a community panel which will have their first meeting on 5 February.
Now the focus shifts to an online forum, which will be held on 2 February at 6.00pm. This forum will be conducted online via Zoom and a text-based discussion platform created by the consultants on this project, Deliberately Engaging. The platform is designed to be engaging for all participants, but support will be at hand if you need it.
To register for the forum and for more information, please visit the Community Vision online forum registration page.
Participants can utilise a range of opportunities to share their views including surveys, a community panel, pop-ups and online forums
