Staying-on-Track-Word-banner-tall.png
 

VicHealth has brought a diverse group of young Victorians together to form a youth jury. The project is part of VicHealth’s ‘Staying on Track’ project, which aims to support a healthy jump from study to purposeful work for young adults aged 18-25. 

MosaicLab has been engaged to design and facilitate the process, which will explore what works to support young adults’ resilience and social connection during that challenging period between completing study and finding purposeful work.

The 58-person jury spent three-days exploring options and developing recommendations in response to the following question: ‘How can we support young adults on their journey to purposeful work?’

Together, the group considered what the current barriers and opportunities are for young adults in this space.  Participants considered a number of key information inputs, and connected with key speakers who represent a range of views and industries including  government, universities, industry and investors.

IAP2A Pitch for the Practice - MosaicLab Project Managers
 

IAP2A PITCH FOR THE PRACTICE 2018

MosaicLab has been engaged by IAP2 Australasia to provide project management services for this  participatory budgeting journey.  IAP2A members decide what ideas they want to see implemented over the next 12 months.

From 21 May 2018, members can ‘pitch a project’. Put forward an idea that benefits our members and meets the pillars of IAP2 Australasia’s strategic plan: advocating for engagement, strengthening engagement networks and/or advancing professional development.

All eligible projects will then be put to a member vote. For 2 weeks in June, ymembers can decide which projects should be prioritised and where the money should go.

This project is provided with support from Harvest Digital Planning, using The HiVE digital engagement platform.

Nillumbik - green wedge deliberation engagement facilitators
 

Nillumbik GREEN WEDGE MANAGEMENT PLAN REVIEW

For the first time in Nillumbik Shire Council’s history, a special community panel of 40 residents from across the municipality will be established to provide recommendations to Council as it reviews its Green Wedge Management Plan.

The panel will be a randomly and independently selected group that is representative cross-section of community members and will sit for up to five days.  The panel will listen to the community’s views covering social, economic and environmental impacts, consider research, hear evidence and make recommendations to Council on ways to ensure the green wedge is preserved, nurtured and managed for current and future generations. 

The review process will be undertaken in four-stages starting in May with Council and community representatives working to identify the best ways to engage with the community, including hard-to-reach audiences.

Following panel deliberations, the wider community will have another opportunity for input when the Green Wedge Management Plan is put out on public consultation for a further three-months towards the end of 2018. 

MosaicLab is designing and facilitating the deliberative elements of the engagement process.

COPP - Youth Feasibility Study - MosaicLab Facilitators
 

City of Port Phillip – Youth Feasibility Study

The City of Port Phillip (CoPP) is exploring the feasibility of providing a dedicated youth space in the municipality. Following the publication of a Youth Places Discussion Paper in 2017, CoPP is working with service providers and young people to explore the issues and opportunities associated with the project. During this initial engagement phase, a strong focus is being placed on capturing young people’s ideas and thoughts on the services required.  

MosaicLab has been engaged to facilitate targeted youth discussions in schools and scout groups. MosaicLab also designed and facilitated the internal council workshop and external workshop with service providers, schools, community organisations and interested groups.

The outputs of these sessions will be used to inform the design, location and service model for a new dedicated youth facility.

CITY OF KINGSTON CUSTOMER SERVICE CHARTER REFRESH

The City of Kingston is encouraging everyone that lives and works in the municipality to participate in co-designing a new customer service charter that supports and guides the Council's customer service delivery into the future.

Following a wider engagement process, a randomly selected panel of community members will meet over three days to consider and weigh up a wide range of input and views, including a wider engagement report.  The panel will respond to the following remit: Council wants to deliver great customer service. We need to find a balance between meeting diverse community expectations and budget constraints. How do we do this?

An employee panel made up of both appointed and randomly selected staff members from across Council’s various service areas will then use the community panel’s recommendations to develop a final version of the Customer Service Charter. Randomly selected panellists on the staff panel will be broadly representative of the City of Kingston’s diverse staff team.

MosaicLab is facilitating both the wider engagement process and panel deliberations, and will be working to support panellists in their task.
