The State Government of Queensland has launched an online questionnaire to allow citizens to contribute to the development of the state’s 30 year plan.


The government posted six questions on the website of the Queensland Plan, inviting residents to give their views on what they believe the short and long-term priorities of the state should be, and how these goals can be realised.


The six questions were developed collaboratively at a summit held recently to discuss the Queensland Plan. “The questions were developed from a collaborative process involving more than 400 community, industry and government representatives at the summit”, said Campbell Newman, Premier of Queensland.


“The answers to these questions will tell us where Queenslanders want their state to be in 30 years’ time, detailing our priorities for the future”, Newman stated.


The six questions posted online for residents are:

# In the context of living in the community, how do we move our focus from ‘me’ to ‘we’?

# How do we create and foster an education culture that teaches skills and values to meet global challenges and optimise regional strengths?

# How do we empower and educate individuals, communities and institutions to embrace responsibility for an active and healthy lifestyle?# How do we structure our economy to ensure our children inherit a resilient future?

# How do we strengthen our economic future and achieve sustainable landscapes?

# How do we attract and retain the brightest minds and ideas where they are most needed and capitalise on global opportunities?


Residents can also contribute to the plan by contacting their local member of Parliament, or participating in community engagement events.
