Tasmania Together is a pioneering project that allows the people of Tasmania to not only say what they want, but to work together to achieve their long-term social, economic and environmental future.
As a world-leading system of community goal setting and progress measurement, it is enshrined in law under the Tasmania Together Progress Board Act 2001 and used to guide decision-making in the government, business and community sectors.
Tasmania Together is a vision for the State based on the wishes of the people. It currently includes 12 goals and 155 benchmarks that reflect the priorities people expressed during extensive community consultation processes undertaken in 2000, 2005 and 2011.
It is an ambitious long-term plan – owned and driven by the community – that aims to bring about change for the better.
The goals and benchmarks in Tasmania Together provide Tasmania’s pathway to the future. They help shape government policy, service delivery and budgets into the future and are being increasingly adopted by local government, business and industry, and community groups.
An independent statutory authority, the Tasmania Together Progress Board, monitors progress towards the achievement of the goals and benchmarks and results are reported to all Tasmanians through the Parliament and online.
This is a plan that belongs to the whole community, not any single government.
With the benefit of a community-driven vision, together we can build the kind of future people want and deserve, aimed at ensuring our children inherit a fairer, cleaner, safer and more prosperous Tasmania.
