Regional Community Forums

The fourth and final round of the Regional Community Forums for 2022 was held on 14 November across seven Queensland regions.

Since 2019, the forums have helped strengthen the partnership between government and regional Queensland, providing those living in our regions greater access to and better opportunities to influence government decision-making.

Throughout the year, the forums have run in partnership with local representatives from each of the seven regions. Members have brought their ideas to the table and worked through potential solutions to local challenges identified in their specific region’s unique forum action plan.

During the final round, opportunities stemming from the Queensland Energy and Jobs Plan were explored and highlights from across the year were reflected on.

For example, in the Wide Bay-Burnett-Fraser Coast region, forum members received an update on progress of a monument honouring the Butchulla people, while in Western Queensland they explored opportunities to broaden educational and school pathways for regional and remote students.

Moving into 2023, the forum action plans will evolve to align with the priorities for each region.
