The Southern Regional Alliance Conference has been a resounding success!
The Conference attracted over 120 participants per day from almost 40 government and community agencies that share an interest ‘getting connected in the urban village’.
The SRA extends sincere thanks to all those who contributed to the success of this dynamic event. In particular, we acknowledge the generous financial support of our Gold, Silver and Session Sponsors that have helped to make this innovative event possible.
The Conference has embraced the knowledge, wisdom and inspiration of three outstanding keynote speakers, 60 session presenters and all participants that have helped to address the key conference question:
How can we work together to address the social determinants of health & assist people to navigate pathways out of poverty & homelessness?
The Conference was reminded of an African Proverb that endorses the SRA’s collaborative approach and ratifies our on-going efforts to meaningfully engage with each other and the people and communities that we work with:
If you want to go faster, go alone.
If you want to go further, go together.
The findings and recommendations emerging from this conference are now being collated and analysed by a Researchers from the Southgate Institute of Flinders University.
· Wherever possible, Conference Papers and PowerPoint Presentations will be made available for download in the near future.
· A Graphic Collage depicting the conference experience of ‘Getting Connected in the Urban Village’ may be viewed on You Tube.
· The conference findings and recommendations will be reviewed by the Southern Regional Alliance and Regional Round Tables over the next few months.
