Have Your Say on The Queensland Plan

thought bubbleIf you are a Queenslander, here’s your chance to have an input into key issues that will shape The Queensland Plan over the next 30 years by taking part in a series of  ‘webjams’.

The online discussion forums which feature some of the leading minds of the state, are part of the consultation process for the working draft of The Queensland Plan and will focus on five key areas: 

  1. Community, health and people
  2. Education
  3. Economy, regions and infrastructure
  4. Balancing environmental protection and economic development
  5. Making government better.

Premier Campbell Newman said the webjams provided an opportunity for an interactive discussion about the targets and measures contained in the working draft of The Queensland Plan.

“Many people from across the state have already provided their views on the working draft, with almost 80 per cent agreeing it reflects the collective views of Queenslanders,” Mr Newman said.

“We want to hear from more Queenslanders. The webjams provide another opportunity for you to have your say and interact directly with some of Queensland’s leading industry and academic experts.

“So whether you’re focused on improving education outcomes or have ideas about how to drive regional growth or encourage more active lifestyles, everyone is invited to participate.

“The experts will share their views on these important topics and respond in real-time to comments and questions from the public.

“We will also use interactive online voting tools to test some of the targets and measures suggested by Queenslanders during the current feedback period.

“Information gathered through the webjams will be collated with the feedback from the review process and used to inform the final Queensland Plan.”

Queenslanders can pre-register through The Queensland Plan website to receive reminder alerts about the webjams.

The webjams will be hosted daily between 12.30pm and 1.30pm from 24 to 28 February 2014 on The Queensland Plan website at www.qld.gov.au/queenslandplan.
