People from all walks of life and all parts of South East Queensland are being invited to attend one of a series of information sessions being staged by the SEQ Regional Scenic Amenity Study group. Sunshine Coast residents will be able to participate at a meeting to be held on Monday, September 6th at 7.00 pm at the Nambour RSL, in Matthew Street.
The session will background residents on the Scenic SEQ project and how they may contribute to a local Community Research Team. Members of these Teams will conduct fundamental research to determine community opinions about the characteristics of scenic areas in South East Queensland. Teams will receive professional training and support in areas such as social research, team building, landscape photography, map interpretation and data interpretation.
At these Information Sessions participants will be briefed on why the Scenic SEQ study was conceived, how it will record community opinions about scenery and complementary development, what it will produce, by when, and how Local Government, the State Government, Industry, Landholders and Community Groups may use these results.
In particular the sessions will explain the field and training program for members of Community Research Teams, the different roles of team members and where training sessions will be held. Organisers believe it represents a wonderful opportunity for residents to learn new skills and contribute to a richer understanding of the beauty and community perceptions about the area in which they live.
Intending participants are asked to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating their interest in attending, putting the session date in the subject field of the email message. People can also find out more about the study at www.scenicseq.info or register interest in the project by calling Volunteering Queensland on 1300 301 018
