Strong Society, Confident Culture Strategy

The draft Strong Society, Confident Culture Strategy provides a framework to build on our cultural and social strengths which connect Territorians. People will feel they belong and are connected to the place they live, and with their fellow community members. Connected communities are active confident and resilient. They are welcoming, vibrant and adaptable. Resilient communities have the ability to withstand, recover from, and respond positively to crisis or adversity.

Social participation and economic development are intrinsically linked. A strong and prosperous economy delivers jobs and income for people, and increases the capacity for government to invest in the essential economic and social infrastructure which underpins our great lifestyle and living standards. A thriving economy will ensure we have the resources to invest in better services, making the Territory a better place to live, work and raise a family.

The strength of outcomes from connection, participation and collaborative governance, including health, child development, education, employment, social cohesion, safety and community planning make social participation an important focus for government.

Please take a moment to review the Draft Executive Summary ‘ Our Plan for Social Participation’ and the Draft Strong Society, Confident Culture Strategy (Social Participation Framework).

Consultation on the draft Strong Society, Confident Culture is now closed.

Thank you to all of you who provided feedback. With your assistance we are ensuring a diverse range of Territorian voices are being heard and are contributing to the development of this important Northern Territory Government policy.
