Community Engagement

Community engagement for Australia Together

Open, inclusive and transparent community engagement is essential to the task of building a sound plan for a better Australia.

 

ACFP provides ongoing opportunities for Australians to engage in this process at any time. Between 2020 and 2022 ACFP developed and began pilot testing the National Integrated Planning & Reporting process to help all Australians participate efficiently in planning their preferred future as a nation. The first cycle of planning for National IP&R was conducted with an open program called the Community Engagement Program for Australia Together. This program was completed in 2022. Read the completed program here.
