Future Scoping Workshop Findings and Actions

Our People, Our Organisations, Our Community and Our Land

Increasing pressure on the environment, our people and our organisations has contributed to long-term negative outcomes for all.  Workforce productivity reduces in the face of increased stress and burnout is not as rare as we would like.  In many communities our land is struggling to cope with pressures on water, issues of managing waste and the conflicts between development and preservation priorities.  Climate change and the associated increases in weather volatility puts pressure on communities to deal with natural disasters and, in others, the slow burn of sea level rise, increased aridity and fauna extinction is a challenge for leaders in communities.

While sustainability and sustainable development are at the forefront of strategy and planning, for many pieces of the puzzle, it may be too little, too late.  Instead, the agenda must shift to regeneration and regenerative development.  In some instances, including some environmental matters, communities and employees, we have to go beyond sustaining what is now and replenish what was there or create something entirely new.  This is the challenge of regeneration.

But despite these challenges, there are local governments across the state who have risen to the challenge and are actively seeking to introduce regenerative measures.  Some are well advanced, others just starting off.

This conference looked beyond the next ten years to consider the longer-term challenges local government and the communities we serve will face.  Through future thinking and mega-trend analysis, delegates had an opportunity to explore what we could be and what we need to avoid being, as we approach the middle of this century.

GUEST PRESENTERS

2017 Annual Conference


In 2017, we put Queensland councils on the stage and examined all the players and the parts they play.  The LGMA Annual Conference showcases the work of local governments; exploring the issues being tackled around the state in an effort to continuously improve service delivery in the community and performance within each local government.  As each of us seek to play our part in the sector, the Annual Conference provides an opportunity to learn from colleagues, discuss challenges and pursue collaborative opportunities.

Photos of the event are HERE.
