In 2010, the Community Engagement Board embarked upon the biggest community engagement process in the history of South Australia’s Strategic Plan, involving people in all regions of South Australia. Face to face engagement and online
approaches, including social media brought a wide range of voices into the process. The voices of over 9 200 people across South Australia created a vision for the state in 2020 and beyond.
