The City of Hobart is proud to be working in partnership with LGAT, the Australian Early Development Census and the B4 Early Years Coalition to deliver a free Local Government Forum “Building Great Communities for Tasmania’s Children”.   The Forum will be held on Thursday, 5 July from 10am to 2.30pm in Campbell Town.

The evidence is clear, what happens for a child in the early years lasts a lifetime. The early years are building the foundations for future life success across multiple areas including physical, cognitive, social and emotional.

Local governments are already doing amazing things to ensure children in the early years thrive. Having the closest and most direct connection with communities, families and children, local governments have an amazing opportunity to build on and support their community’s capacity to ensure a great community for their children.

Forum attendees will hear inspiring stories from interstate and local contexts and take away practical knowledge and skills to apply in their work and strategic planning.

Guest speakers include: Geoffrey Woolcock– Institute of Resilient Regions University of Southern Queensland, Simon Spain B4 Early Years Coalition Leader and former City of Melbourne Art Play, Tasmanian local government representatives and Australian Early Development Census experts.

If you want the best for your communities’ children, then this forum is essential for your work now and into the future.
