SEGRA Foundation

SEGRA is an independent network advancing issues affecting regional Australia

We are an independent and non-partisan network of Australians who voice, advocate for and advance the long term interests of regional Australia. Our vision is to create a connected and prosperous rural, remote and regional Australia.

Celebrating 27 years in 2023, SEGRA is an annual event that aims to assist regional, rural and remote Australia to source and identify the techniques, skills and issues they need to address which will help achieve successful economic growth and development.

Our Goals

SEGRA acts to provide end to end value to regional Australia using a systems approach to:

  • Raise the profile of regions as essential parts of Australia’s national outlook
  • Empower regions to be responsible for their own economic destinies
  • Identify ideas, regional issues and opportunities
  • Influence policy by encouraging evidence based responses and supporting practice based research and projects
  • Promote regional connectivity and collaboration
