A common theme was the need to find sustainable industries for the winter months and to have training opportunities with local job outcomes attached.
A common theme was the need to support alternative work models for professionals and to foster creative means of employment.
A common theme that arose was the need to support the next generation to succeed and prosper in the Derwent Valley.
By connecting with these communities, facilitating conversations and sharing in the decision-making, we are working together to reduce employment inequality and disadvantage in our State.
The co-design model is designed to engage and involve communities during the development and decision making process and this sits at the heart of this Project.
Emerging Voices helps each and every one of us realise the power of our voice in our community and how we as individuals can shape Tasmania.
TasCOSS has developed a ‘Capitals Framework’ for Sorell and the Derwent Valley to help all partners in the Community Innovation and Investment Project (CIIP) better understand the people and places we’ll be working with before we hit the ground with community consultation.
