City of Sydney Council
Sustainable Sydney 2050 Strategic Plan and Community Engagement
A community’s vision and aspirations for their area is the core of local government Community Strategic Plans, and in 2019, the City of Sydney embarked on an extensive community engagement program to support the development of their new plan, Sustainable Sydney 2050.
Our engagement program needed to be as inclusive as possible to capture the breadth of the City’s community. It also needed to delve deeply into the challenges of city-making. The engagement curated by the City of Sydney was successful in achieving this, and in 2020, the Sydney 2050 engagement program won the International Association of Public Participation award for Project of the Year.
Cred, in association with People Place and Partnership, were contracted as community engagement and city planning specialists to deliver the first stage of engagement through four ‘listening sessions’ with the community, to support the development of its Sustainable Sydney 2050 Vision.
