PLANNING PROGRESSING FOR THE 2019 202020 VISION NATIONAL TOUR

3 April 2019

Throughout March, the 202020 Vision team continued with preparations for the 2019 national tour, named the Growing Together tour, which will take place between May and August 2019. 

This year's tour is themed around securing community engagement and support for green space projects, a key theme that has come up time and time again in discussions with both councils and developers. In the words of one developer, "if you don't get the community on board, you're in for a long, drawn out process!" The tour will present brand-new community research commissioned by Hort Innovation about community perceptions around green space, and will also provide practical support for both councils and developers wanting to bring community along on their green space journeys.

Like previous national tours, the program will be working with key partners to deliver one-day workshop events in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide. As part of these events, we will also be inviting industry to a special briefing session.

Confirmed dates have been secured for the following states:

Adelaide: May 30
Melbourne: July 11
Perth: July 25
Sydney: August 8

Brisbane date to be confirmed.
