A Canberra for Everyone

The strength and beauty of our community lies in its diversity. 

Everyone deserves to feel welcome and able to participate with confidence in the shaping of our collective identity and culture.

Too many groups feel unsafe, excluded, isolated, or not welcome because of who they are. Many others are unable to fully participate due to the design of our streets, buildings, and public spaces. 

Diversity will be key to cementing Canberra as a thriving city ready for the challenges our society and our planet face. To make sure the ACT is a place for everyone, the ACT government must invest in programs and infrastructure that makes everyone welcome and able to participate in our public life and spaces. 

Our policies and initiatives were designed in consultation with the communities they impact in order to create a Canberra for everyone. Critically, we recognise that these communities must also be given the autonomy to implement, review, and drive many of these programs for them to succeed.
