Town Team State Conference 2021
Town Team State Conference | Presented by City of Bunbury, Plico Energy & RAC |
Bunbury, WA | Friday August 13 2021
Town Team Movement are hosting our third annual State Conference and this year we are in Bunbury, WA. But this event is more than just a talk fest. Its about living and embodying the Town Team principles through immersive experience. Its about learning through doing. Its about being and doing Place rather than simply talking about Place.
In 2021 we aim to explore the concept of “Act Local” and how Town Teams and governments at all levels can play an expanding role in facilitating more connected and resilient communities through positive action.
This event is open to passionate community members, government representatives, business owners, registered Town Team members and anyone interested in learning more about the Town Team ethos.
