Recently, The Goulburn Post has run numerous articles regarding the uninspiring state of our town. I love a good problem.
The point is, focusing solely on the problem rarely offers any solutions.
So, if like me, you were upset that most people (including myself) hold at least a few negative perceptions about our cool little town, then it begs the question - how are we, as a community, going to fix it?
Our world is rapidly changing. We have the potential to embody citizen-led democratic change. Using the many tools we have at our disposal, we can create a unified, interconnected and meaningful community experience right here in Goulburn.
Now, that sounds like a place where I want to live. After all, the society that we get to experience is only a reflection of our collective efforts and personalities.
If we had a platform to generate and collect fresh ideas, we could start creating a cohesive vision of the town we want to live in. While many of us might fall into the 'interested' basket when it comes to this task, I think our town needs a few more energetic and creative people jumping into the 'active' basket.
