Join us as we explore the potential benefits of anchor collaboratives and localising supply chains for local economic development.
Meaghan Burkett, the Director of Ethical Fields, will discuss community wealth building through supply chains, and the potential through localisation, when fully adopted within the community. Dr Joanne McNeill, Associate Professor at Griffith University, will give an overview of anchor approaches, including the six strategic domains; and how these can activate and strengthen the impact of localisation strategies. Emily Davies O’Sullivan, City Activation Officer at the City of Newcastle, will discuss how the Localising Supply Chains project fits within the City of Newcastle’s broader strategic vision and objectives, key insights it has raised and how it might be used going forward.
The event will be moderated by Patrick Fensham, Principal & Partner and National Leader for Urban Policy & Governance at SGS Economics and Planning.
This event will draw on an LGiU Australia four-part series exploring opportunities for local governments to grow local productivity and place-based wellbeing by intentionally adopting anchor approaches. Pre-reading is not essential.
