How the Victoria Summit 2021 works 

The Victoria Summit 2021 is a unique opportunity for thought leaders from industry, unions, governments, the community sector and educational institutions to work together to create a shared, bold, compelling and aspirational vision for Victoria and a path for our state’s economic recovery and long-term prosperity. 

The Summit will operate from March to November highlighted by two thought-provoking Victoria Summit Days – a Vision Day, followed by a Pathways Day. Vision, pathways and actions will be developed within three specific thematic groups (business and the economy, the future of work, and community health and wellbeing) and culminate in a final playbook launched in December. 

 

Community, Health and Wellbeing Theme Overview 

The Community, Health and Wellbeing theme acknowledges social and ecological outcomes are intrinsically linked to Victoria’s economic success. All Victorians should have access to affordable essential services, a high-quality education and employment opportunities, connections to a community, have access to best-practice mental and physical health support and maximise the natural and tourism assets our state has to offer.

Community, Health and Wellbeing

Check out this short video to learn more about the Community, Health and Wellbeing theme and its sub themes that will be a central focus throughout the Victoria Summit 2021.  

Community, Health and Wellbeing

The Community, Health and Wellbeing sub themes include: high quality living standard; creative and diverse culture; community and social connectivity; mental and physical health; access to safe, appropriate and affordable housing; educational attainment; access to community events and tourism; environmental sustainability; and access to affordable essential services.

There is already a huge amount of research already undertaken in this area. Our resources page provides an overview of some of this research to help develop a vision for our state.

Dear Paul and Team at the Chamber,
Thank you for your tireless and diligent work representing Vic Business – much appreciated 🙂

The sudden COVID lockdown has many consequences. My CO-CEO (and wife) Sharada and I together facilitate Wellbeing Retreats. We were 4 days into our 7 Day Retreat when the lockdown forced us to cancel the retreat. Our clients ranged from NDIS challenged, stressed / anxious family, business owners and individuals. The sudden lockdown had these impacts:-
1) Clients – Disappointment and caused further distress and uncertainty
2) Venue Owners of our Retreat – Loss of potential income
3) Us – Extra costs. Either through refunds or creating another future Retreat as “credit” for our clients effected. We value our clients as real people and we care and act with integrity for them.

I saw your recent article on how the sudden lockdown has caused many fellow business owners grief, the huge loss to the Vic economy plus the fear and uncertainty it causes Victorians. I will support you in any way I can to develop a more “common sense” and practical way of handling COVID detections and containment. I am would like the Vic Govt to work more closely with the Community at large, especially your Chamber to be more accountable, more caring and considerate of their decisions. It seems like it when an outbreak occurs the Vic Govt uses “the shotgun” approach. Maybe something to consider is to have an “Advisory Board” that includes Community representatives (like the Chamber) to make better “common sense” and measured decisions. Thank you again 🙂
