What questions do we ask at our forums and why?

Shaping our Future forums are all about gathering the views of our community without bias and without restraint on thinking.  The members of our community have the right to be heard, to voice their goals and objectives and to dream big (or small!). 

The questions that we ask at forum are designed to encourage blue sky thinking, initiate discussion on the current big issues to think about our future - what would we like, and what can we aspire to?  It might be something we would like tomorrow or it might be something we aspire to in the long term future.

Communities can create their own pathways and different projects might take different paths but if everyone is working towards the same end goal then we can effective 'shape our future'.

The Queenstown Lakes District is a unique area facing unique challenges.  Many agencies and individuals are focused on the problems of today. Without knowing where we want to go, how can we move in the right direction? 

Shaping our Future was formed to put communities at the forefront of shaping tomorrows future today.  We invite you to support us in creating a better future for our children, grandchildren and beyond.  We look to the long term - where do we want to be in 30, 40, 50 years?  Our process is designed to put in place actions to achieving our vision.

If we don't, who will?
