What’s keeping us active?
Collaboration is integral to the success of Active Geelong. For Geelong to become Australia’s most active city we will need to work with all sectors of the community, get them involved and seek their support.
Active Geelong has been successful in securing grants from Geelong Connected Communities and Geelong Community Foundation. These grants are helping us to establish Active Geelong as a recognised brand in the Geelong community through the development of our website.
Thank you to these wonderful community minded organisations for their support.
In June we were delighted to receive support from City of Greater Geelong who recognised the innovative approach we’re taking as an example of creative design thinking and included Active Geelong as part of Geelong’s City of Design designation by UNESCO.
Geelong has a long and proud history as a creative city and leader in design. It is Australia’s first (and only) City of Design and joins an international network of 180 cities committed to the power of creativity and innovation in building sustainable cities. It’s about collaboration, culture, planning, people and prosperity – working together for a clever and creative future for all.
This is a great achievement for Active Geelong especially to be recognised with other great Geelong-based initiatives such as GROW (G21 Region Opportunities for Work), Manufutures and Federal Mills. Find out more about Geelong City of Design here.
