Community Action
and Forums

Share our successes;
Be part of our future.

Since 2011 we have been engaging with our community on a range of topics.

Over 2000 community members have spent over 4000 volunteer hours working collectively to influence policy-making in the Queenstown Lakes District.

We have helped shape policy using public forums and task forces to create reports and deliver recommendations that reflect community consensus. We have relied on a well-tested formula, involving a public forum leading to a volunteer task force creating a strategy report, which goes back to the forum to become endorsed and presented as recommendations to the government.

Our world changes and our methods of engaging have too. We use surveys, online sessions and host talks as ways of getting a conversation started with you.
