CSIRO has developed a way to give communities an opportunity to express their views and experiences into companies that operate alongside them. Our approach enables a dynamic interaction between company and community that aims to increase understanding on all sides, build trust, and strengthen relationships. It builds upon knowledge gained from Australian and global communities through thousands of CSIRO research hours over the past decade.
Port Waratah Coal Services has partnered with CSIRO for a two-year project to apply the CSIRO approach. The project is called Local Voices. Local Voices will provide the communities neighbouring Port Waratah’s operations a way to express their views and experiences directly into the company, and help the company engage with the issues that matter most to these communities.
Help spread the word
We encourage you to help spread the word about Local Voices and let others in your community know how they too can participate.
