The National Community Recovery Summit is an open-invitation event for representatives of local communities, service providers, social and economic development practitioners and researchers, philanthropic bodies, advocacy organisations and representative bodies – to enable community voices to deliberate on, and to inform, how Australia can recover best from the COVID pandemic.
The Australia Together alliance believes that there’s a unique opportunity for Australia to build on the goodwill and collaboration seen through the COVID-19 pandemic to tackle some of the country’s enduring challenges at the summit being held online next Wednesday July 1st 2020, from 10am to 1pm.
The focal areas of the summit will be:
- Early childhood development
- Social and affordable housing
- Jobs, skills and enterprises
- Engaging local communities
The National Community Recovery Summit will help build a roadmap for family, community and nation-building reforms and initiatives that enables local leadership and action. The roadmap will address vital gaps and challenges, often exposed or amplified by the pandemic, as well as what works and what’s changed. The goal is to contribute to how Australia can #getbettertogether and leave a positive legacy of a more inclusive, cohesive, resilient, prosperous, fair and sustainable Australia.
Greater Shepparton Lighthouse Executive Officer, Lisa McKenzie, is one of the breakout speakers (engaging local communities) at the summit being held online next Wednesday July 1st 2020, from 10am to 1pm.
