Over a twelve month period, our community had its say about the ideas and elements crucial to our region’s development and prosperity.
People talked with us about what they value most about our region, how they rate it against the elements of a successful community, and how they view the challenges confronting and will confront us.
At the Our Future Assembly on Saturday 6 May 2017, more than 300 members of our community confirmed that Greater Geelong should be globally recognised as a Clever and Creative City-region.
The community-led vision was the culmination of nine-months of ongoing conversations with about 16,000 people from Greater Geelong to describe a 30-year vision and ensure a thriving, inclusive and sustainable future for our region.
How this information will be used
Based on feedback from the assembly, and after delving back into the detail of the engagements, we prepared the overriding strategy to have Greater Geelong recognised as a Clever and Creative City-region.
The Our Future strategy document (Greater Geelong: A clever and creative future) was published on our website on 14 July 2017, prior to being considered by City Administrators at the Council meeting that was held on 25 July 2017.
