  • A series of workshops late in 2019 with community members and stakeholder groups to capture initial values, themes and ideals;
  • Community Summit in February, 2020 where big ideas were hatched and explored before being analysed and grouped by consultants into an Engagement Summary document.

Following this current consultation phase, results will be analysed and a draft Vision 2050 document will be developed according to feedback for consideration by Council.

The draft document will then be released to the community for a period of public comment prior to adoption by Council.

Celebrity Director of ground-breaking documentary ‘2040’ Damon Gameau chatted online recently with Shire of Dardanup Councillors, staff and interested community members about concepts raised so far during the Shire of Dardanup’s Vision 2050 consultation.

Damon’s feedback on our direction so far was positive and full of hope.

This is what he had to say:

“I want to congratulate you for embarking on this vision. And right now this is exactly what we need to be doing…,” Damon said.

“I love seeing in your document this idea of localisation. How do we secure more food, more energy from within our local region?

“I think every community now is thinking about this in a legitimate way. How do we produce more jobs and more manufacturing in our community instead of outsourcing to overseas and potentially vulnerable supply chains?

“That was really heartening to see.

“Your ideas around creating jobs. That’s really clear language that people need to hear right now.

“And I love the idea of opening this up to the community and getting their say and getting their feedback.”

Damon said research around the world showed people wanted more of a say in how their community is governed. They want to be re-empowered.
