Council joined the United Nations Global Compact - Cities Programme and the team used the programme’s ‘City Scan’ tool to assess a range of attributes contributing to sustainability issues for our district. The resulting information was shared and discussed with a wide range of people in our community to get an understanding of what things were of most importance or concern to focus on in the strategy. (See Appendix for a summary table of the results) This resulting strategy focuses on six particular objectives. The steering group held a number of focus groups to talk with community members about their ideas to help to develop the strategy, pictured here at the Rotorua Youth Centre. The themes of action across the strategy are: • Leadership • Collaboration • Innovation and change management Council is just one part of the community and many of the objectives are complex and require support from across agencies, Te Arawa, the community and business sectors in order to achieve the outcomes. To this end the strategy is framed from the perspective of council working with the community. The strategy actions include areas where: • Council has statutory obligations to develop policies and regulations that will support actions • Council takes direct responsibility to lead actions • Council partners with and works collaboratively with others providing leadership to achieve • Council encourages, supports learning and provides information but is not directly responsible
