Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
To ensure sustainable urban and regional planning. Accountable, measurable policies that provide for now and the future. A plan that outlives whoever is in government and ensures that we are up to date on infrastructure and amenities. Basically, comprehensive planning for growth management.
It's all part of making a better world.
People have access and can afford good shelter. We have better harnessed our resources to provide electricity. We have good transport and transportation routes. Through foresight, we anticipate growth. Rural areas are as equipped as urban areas. Education has caught up with the rest of the world. A strict government that is held accountable for their actions. Where every policy follows due process.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by the young and old already frustrated with the current situations. The working class, self employed, retired, jobless, students, deprived. People who had the zeal but lost it.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
A coming together of stakeholders to discuss
Relevant and accesible data and narratives
Interpretation of this data and narratives to help inform the next step
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
When the 'conversation' has started. When people are active about providing solutions and we have a bank of data to work with.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
