Navigating a Sustainable Course

Now that we've taken stock of the Coast Today, it is time to turn our attention to the future. How do we ensure that we are on the path to sustainability? If we had to agree as a community on a set of guidelines that we could follow - like a compass - to move consistently towards a sustainable future for the Sunshine Coast, what would those guidelines look like?

Core Values

At its root, our compass has four directions, each quadrant holding a group of core values on which sustainable communities are built, and which we suggest can help keep us on course:

  • Economic Vitality
  • Health and Social Well Being
  • Cultural Vitality, and
  • Environmental Responsibility

Secondly, our compass points towards a destination - a clear statement of what We Envision a sustainable Sunshine Coast to look like many years into the future.

Strategic Directions

Strategic Directions represent critical pathways to a sustainable future - they provide the bridges that span the gap between where we are today and where we want to be (our Vision). Each of the Strategic Directions interacts with the rest, and is inextricably linked to several of the others.
