One thing I couldn't help but notice watching the newest Revitalising Newcastle video was the lack of diversity. That solo young student really seemed to stick out...
Don't get me wrong, I think Revitalising Newcastle are doing a pretty good job.
My question is more around, how do we get more diverse groups to want to be involved?
Are they just simply disenfranchised by the whole idea of involvement as if their voice won't get heard, so why bother?
I love this comment from Brad on the Facebook Page "No no it's Newcastle . You need multiple committees that disagree With a consensus then take it to court against advice and loose. All this to advance steel town . Good luck Newcastle , to win you've got to beat yourself first".
I can't wait to see these stations transformed to suit the changing needs of our community.
