Australian Community Indicators Network
This seminar features three presentations on current key Australian community indicator initiatives.
In the first presentation, Mike Salvaris speaks about the emerging initiative, the Australian National Development Index (ANDI), Australia’s first and only participatory, interactive and community-based national tool for defining, measuring and understanding the progress of Australia.
Sue Taylor gives the second presentation, talking about the ABS's Measures of Australia's Progress (MAP) and the national consultation process that ABS is undertaking for MAP, showing how ABS has measured progress through history; what has been done most recently; why they are embarking on this consultation; what it is trying to achieve and how you can contribute to this national conversation.
In the third presentation, Anthony McGregor provides an overview of the Australian Government’s work on developing sustainability indicators for Australia. He will outline the scope and objectives of the program and provide an update on the development of the national indicator set.
