Strategic Framework

Delivering positive, sustainable change for people and business.

There are a number of strategic documents that provide the framework for Perth City Leadership Forum and Perth Ambassadors, and assist the working groups in setting the agenda for positive change.

Created by leading stakeholders and enterprise forums across the area, these cover a number of key economic priorities, advances in infrastructure and equality for all.

In order to execute this we need a clarity of vision, a clarity of purpose and a belief that Perth can grow to become even greater than it is now. In 2020 Perth City Leadership Forum set out a vision to become one of the most sustainable small cities in Europe.

Today, that vision sits at the heart of or strategic framework and with increasing onus on cities to play a role in commitments on sustainability, we believe that Perth is uniquely well placed to lead the way, both here at home and on an international stage.

Perth is uniquely well-placed to lead the way on sustainability.
