The City of Greater Geelong is asking community members to have their say as the City seeks to update its Multicultural Action Plan for 2023-2024.

In renewing the existing Multicultural Action Plan, the City is seeking to build on its strengths and develop new ways to inform and guide its work in celebrating the region’s  cultural diversity.

City of Greater Geelong Mayor, Trent Sullivan, said the health and wellbeing of the broader community is at the heart of the Multicultural Action Plan update.

“The City of Greater Geelong has long celebrated the region’s rich cultural diversity and acted on opportunities to create positive social, cultural and economic impacts,” Mayor Sullivan said.

“Valuing, respecting, connecting, and enabling people are some of the many ways we endeavour to make people the centre of everything we do.”

Mayor Sullivan said the City values, supports and respects people from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds and faiths, and it is vital that they are fully able to participate in the community.

Councillor Jim Mason, Chair of the Multicultural Action Plan Committee, encouraged community members to contribute to the Multicultural Action Plan.

“In the quest for inclusion, fairness, access and increased participation, it’s important that we hear an assortment of voices from across the community,” Cr Mason said.

“We welcome input from a wide variety of community members to ensure that the next Multicultural Action Plan continues to meet their needs.” 

Input from key partner organisations and stakeholders will be considered alongside community views when designing the plan.

A Have Your Say page has been developed offering community members the chance to contribute via a survey:

The Have Your Say page will close on 20 January 2023.
