RAISING #RRR VOICES
In an effort to deliver tangible change for rural, remote and regional Australians an hour-long session titled ‘Influence and Engage’ saw Federal and State politicians, advisors and advocates answering two questions at the 2023 Summit:
● What community engagement models and strategies have been successful in rural Australia and led to influence or impact at the local, state, or national level?
● And; How can we enhance participation in the policy making process and ensure that the voices of rural, remote, and regional Australia are heard?
Attendees took the opportunity to brainstorm real world solutions to the question; What action would you recommend rural, remote and regional communities do to raise their voices? The 150 responses identified key themes that can be used moving forward to advocate for the needs of those in our communities.
