The New England Futures Group is a regionally located think-tank with the goal of seeing rural communities grow and flourish.
NEFG is formed by a diverse range of people from a range of backgrounds united on the goal to grow our local communities and to think through ways in which local governments can be serving their electors better.
The New England Futures Group aims to create a platform that encourages community leaders and the wider community to step up and take more of an active interest in their local government.
In the process of achieving this goal, we aim to critique State, Local and Federal government decisions that ultimately inhibit growth and prosperity while at the same time as creating suggestions to how these communities can grow and overcome ever changing threats and challenges imposed on us by technology, globalisation and changing culture.
We believe that technology creates this amazing platform through which every man, woman, and child can have a voice, be heard, and above all, get involved in the local government issues that affect them the most. We plan to attract the brightest people with the best ideas to carry our banner “Doing local government better” forward, and hopefully one day across Australia.
Communities need to expect more from their representatives, leaders, and councilors. We hope to provide a platform to make this happen.
