In mid 2020, WHGNE and our sister organisation Women’s Health and Wellbeing Barwon South West were approached by Australia reMADE to participate in a pilot workshop to inform research being undertaken by them. Staff from both of our organisations participated, as well as key stakeholders in both of our regions.
The work investigated the idea of the Public Good – what does this mean for Australia, how do we imagine a future that puts Public Good at the center of it, and what can we do to shape that future? After significant work, Australia remade: Reclaiming our purpose has been published.
We’ve found the resulting paper to be useful to frame some of the conversations we’re having both within the team, but more importantly, with stakeholders. We are using this paper to support capacity building at our Community of Practice as well as in more public work such as our Regions reIMAGINED conversation series.
