Everyone can play a role in helping our communities and region to recover from the impact of the pandemic.
Our governments' response to the COVID – 19 pandemic has been necessary and effective, but given the sheer scale of the challenge, their efforts can only go so far. While they are starting to roll out their recovery plans there are positive, innovative things that communities can make happen now.
There has never been a better time to mobilise the power and potential in our community.
We know communities can mobilise quickly when a response is required and that we respond better when community, business and government work together. We also know from experience, the best response to a crisis often comes from the ground up. We can do more to empower and support those closest to and most affected by the pandemic to identify and implement local solutions now and into the future.
The COVID Recovery - next great regional city challenge - is a collective call to action for the community to help jump-start the whole region.
This campaign aims to build an online community that helps people stay connected and where they can ask for or offer support during this time of crisis.
