Jonathan Sri, Greens for The Gabba says
West End, Highgate Hill, South Brisbane, Dutton Park, Woolloongabba, Kangaroo Point, East Brisbane... If you live or work in one of these suburbs, or if you care about the future of Brissie's inner-south side, come along to this free conference and invite your friends and neighbours.

When: Saturday, February 6 (arrive 9:30 for 10am start)
Where: upstairs function room at the Pineapple Hotel in Raymond Park. Street address is 706 Main Street, Kangaroo Point.

We're planning a full-day conference to discuss and develop a detailed vision for the future of the Gabba Ward in the lead-up to the Brisbane City Council election on March 19.

This free event is open to all members of the public (regardless of what political party you support). To help with catering and seating arrangements, it will be immensely helpful to us if you register in advance through this link: https://contact-qld.greens.org.au/civicrm/event/register?id=766&reset=1

The goal of the conference is to allow ordinary residents of Brisbane more meaningful input into our local policies and initiatives, and discuss how we can better serve the needs and interests of those who struggle to have their voices heard by the current political system.

The conference will include presentations from expert speakers, forums, candidate Q&As and an open mic session, and will deal with a range of inter-related topics including:
- planning, development and housing affordability
- traffic congestion
- public transport
- cycling and walkable neighbourhoods
- local governance and participatory democracy
- community connectedness and social inclusivity

The conference runs from 10am to 4pm with a BBQ lunch in the park. Residents are welcome to come along just for an hour or two, or to stay the whole day.

A detailed schedule of the day's talks is available at jonathansri.com/conference.

Please note: unfortunately the upper level of the Pineapple Hotel is not wheelchair accessible. If you have mobility issues please contact us via jonathan.sri@qld.greens.org.au to let us know what sessions you’re interested in attending, and we’ll make arrangements to ensure those sessions aren’t upstairs. Recordings of all sessions will also be made available online after the conference.

See you on February 6!
