Georges River Council to foster culture of innovation collaboration

13/05/2020

Roads made from recycled glass, multipurpose buildings with community gardens, sustainable water harvesting and local entrepreneurship could feature in the future of the Georges River as outlined in the new Georges River Innovation Strategy.
 
Created in close consultation with the community, the Strategy outlines six key pillars for action that will guide Council towards achieving innovative and sustainable outcomes locally.
 
Mayor of Georges River Council Kevin Greene explained that the Strategy was a collaborative effort, which was created using insights from the community.
 
“I am delighted to launch the Georges River Innovation Strategy, which was informed through community consultation in 2019 including, face-to-face meetings with various community groups, and a survey,” said Mayor Greene.
 
“Georges River Council is striving towards being a ‘leader for change’, and fostering a culture of innovation locally is at the heart of this goal.
 
“Creating a collaborative innovation network will be critical to achieving this, where we will be able to gather insights from government, business, non-government organisations, start-ups, research institutions, entrepreneurs and the community.
 
“We aim to build an innovation pipeline that will enable Council and external groups to propose innovative ideas, and establish collaborative events and activities for the community, business and Council staff.
 
“The community also told us that they want social, environmental and economically sustainable activity at the centre of innovation within Georges River.
 
“We all have a part to play in creating a culture of innovation in our city, and I look forward to seeing Council work alongside new partners and the community to help bring innovation to life in Georges River”, added Mayor Greene.
