Inside the 2018 Gippsland Regional Assembly by Chair Maree McPherson


Inside the Gippsland Regional AssemblyOn behalf of the Gippsland Regional Partnership, I am pleased to share with you the findings of the recent Gippsland Regional Assembly.

The Assembly took place in Wonthaggi on 28 June 2018, with a satellite session held concurrently at Lakes Entrance. We had almost 250 guests attend across both sites, with Premier Daniel Andrews encouraging the audience to have its say about Gippsland's future.

The conversations held at the Assembly have been documented and are summarised in this booklet.

It was wonderful to see a number of young people at this year's event. Students from Leongatha and Newhaven Secondary College raised their concerns regarding a lack of career guidance and student pathways in schools. They also told us about the difficulty of travelling to Melbourne by bus. You can read more about our youth engagement on page 10.

Key messages heard at the Assembly and the next steps are outlined on page 12. Rest assured, these message will be relayed to Government including through the Victorian Government's Rural and Regional Ministerial Committee.

As Chair of the Gippsland Regional Partnership, it is a privilege to work with the people of Gippsland to understand their hopes and inspirations for our bright future.
