A number of key industry sectors has been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic including tourism, retail, hospitality, and culture and the arts. Other industries have had to rapidly adapt to changing environments. Economic recovery and growth will require restoring the confidence of business, along with investment in innovation and emerging industries, and at the same time encouraging people to support small and large businesses across the State.

We want to hear your thoughts on the pandemic’s impact, and your ideas on what should be the priorities and actions to support the recovery of industry and business.

Step up and be brave Perth!

Our city needs to look towards future proofing through sustainable, resilient and regenerative  design  and industries which support this. There are so many great technologies globally. Perth needs to stop being so risk adverse, look at global trends and precedents. We are not the only hot, dry, windy city in the world. A brave new world Perth! We can be up there with the leaders or we can stay in the 'safe zone' (but not ) of business as usual.

women are workers too! and just as important as men

Putting gender on the tender is great in areas with a strong gender imbalance. But lots of women like to work in areas requiring good social skills, and many of which contribute more to our social capital and growth than bridges or mines - e.g. our teachers and nurses.  Our artists and the baristas who chat with us while they make our coffee.  So make sure for every dollar spent on a job for a bloke (e.g. to renovate a home), there is a job for a woman who is making people feel better or do...

Facilitate virtual training platform

What problem are we trying to solve? Facilitate was created by the Perth-based team at Unleashed to help solve a uniquely Western Australian problem:  How can we provide quality effective training to all workers, regardless of how remote they are?   With remote work being mandated during COVID-19, this issue has taken on a new level of urgency and providing effective training to remote workers has now become a global concern.

Create transitional jobs in areas of COVID-related need and open up future career opportunities in The Care Economy

Care work has a crucial role to play in our social and economic recovery, and OECD modelling shows that investment in care is the most effective form of economic stimulus. Working women have been worst hit by the crisis and cuts to childcare, and overlooked in Federal stimulus programs – it is time we valued their work more. The more that we can do quickly to provide advice and support to those who have lost their jobs and livelihoods the fewer households will fall into poverty and...

Extend Home Bonus Grant

I want to build my first house in Perth, it is always my home however because the border is still close, I might not be able to reach the 31 December deadline.

Beautiful Australia

The one thing I hear repeatedly from tourists is how beautiful the environment in Australia is.  We need to protect these tourist attractions and create more nature based activities.

Invest in WA Beaches, Perth need to be more fun.

In Perth we have the most beautiful beaches in the world, but its Boring.. nothing to do there, no service, no entertainment except our own basic things. Why we don’t have investments there,, no hotels no resorts no private beaches with good service , good vibes, good food and drinks delivered to your sun bed and nice lounges for sunset time. Australians always travel to next door countries only for that.. to get pampered and feel like they are in holiday, why we don’t feel that in our...
