Thirty-two community broadcasting leaders and other stakeholders travelled from across the country and met at the Roadmap 2033 Leadership Forum on February 23 in Sydney.
The Forum was the capstone event of the Discovery Phase of this eight-month project. Participants agreed the sector’s purpose is to serve their communities. The group rated the environmental issues that have the potential to impact the community broadcasting sector, positively or negatively, over the next ten years. They also heard the results of the extensive consultation that has already taken place, including 22 one-on-one interviews and ten focus groups. The participants engaged in co-design discussions around four draft themes: identity, impact, innovation and collaboration.

The next step in the Roadmap 2033 process will see subscribers invited to respond to a discussion paper in April that will pose key questions for stakeholders to consider based on the discussions held last week and discussions with over 100 other stakeholders.
Broadcasters are also invited to participate in the Roadmap 2033 Values Survey to develop the shared sector values. The survey closes on Thursday 9 March 2023. Please feel free to share the survey with your partners involved in the sector to ensure as many community broadcasters have the opportunity to contribute as possible.
