Regional Sustainability and Development Workshop
14th May 2005

Starting from the question of ‘why develop?’ this seminar/workshop will address how thinking about development in terms of sustainability rather than profit can lead to outcomes of ‘enduring, broad-based value’ for regional areas. Enduring broad-based value encompasses the creation of financial, economic, social and human environmental and technological capital that has long-lasting benefits for community and business alike.

Such outcomes require networks and communication and this workshop will address how this can best occur, noting that regional areas such as Sunraysia are uniquely placed to facilitate such communication as they are broad enough to provide political and economic stability and synergies but local enough not to overlook communities.
