It Takes a Town would like to invite you to participate in Imagine 2484. A year-on from the worst flooding in our region’s history, what might it be like to turn our gaze away from crisis, towards imagining futures where everyone and everything is thriving? The type of future we would most like to live in.
It Takes a Town is hosting a shopfront for residents, schools, clubs, groups, not-for-profits, business owners, resilience groups, and churches, to come together and build a shared vision of a better future. A vision that will guide us as our community continues to recover. A vision that will inform government planning and the work of community organisations for years to come.
We would like to invite you to participate in a discussion at the shopfront. Working alongside others, you’ll contribute to answering the following questions:
1. What does a thriving, regenerative and safe future for Murwillumbah and villages look and feel like?
2. What strategies and actions will take us towards this future?
3. What strengths and opportunities presently exist in our community, that can help us to create a safe, thriving and regenerative future?
