The City of Sydney website reports that they have released a Draft Social Sustainability Policy and a Discussion Paper, A City for All – towards a socially just and resilient Sydney. Both documents can be downloaded from the list of documents on the right-hand side of this webpage: http://sydneyyoursay.com.au/socialsustainability.
The policy and discussion paper outline the City’s vision, principles and framework for a more socially sustainable Sydney, along with latest evidence of the critical social issues faced by the community. This framework is underpinned by four strategic directions and a suite of proposed actions to make Sydney an inclusive, connected, liveable, and engaged city.
City of Sydney is currently seeking input from individuals and organisations to inform the final policy and the development of an Action Plan that will set out a concrete plan for collaboratively working towards a more socially just and resilient city.
Submissions can be made by email or by completing the survey at the above-mentioned webpage. Closing date is 12 May.
