Emerging Voices

Many Tasmanians feel powerless, like their voices don’t matter.

But when people feel their voices are heard anything is possible.

Emerging Voices is a framework for community change. It aims to help people understand their own power and gives them the tools they need to create the change they want to see.

Emerging Voices combines the ‘doing’ and the ‘being’ by helping participants lift their quality of awareness – of themselves and their environment – as well as giving them practical tools for taking action.

Through workshops participants gain the confidence, knowledge and skills they need to drive real, lasting change in their communities. They learn how to expand their influence through a range of strategies including building relationships, campaigning and crafting their story.
