The G20 is coming to our community. What does that mean to you?
A listening post is a space for community conversations – a platform for engagement with ideas. There are no right or wrong answers – just a willingness to share and to discuss issues of import –or that impact our community- face to face – in public.
Let’s talk about the G20 coming to Brisbane.
You are invited to join us for a chat, fill out a simple survey, write or draw your thoughts, make a sign and take a picture, make a recording or video statement.
With your agreement, these will be later shared with others (including decision makers) via display- physical installation/internet so that community voices can be heard.
See our events page for details about when and where the next listening post will be available.

Listening Post Feedback Form Responses:
Anything you would like to share: Whilst these world leaders are discussing things like economics and climate change. They have shut down a normally vibrant city, hurt businesses and currently have gensets all around the city running a few low wattage lights in broad daylight. These could easily be run off a battery at night only, when required. I’m embarrassed to be an aussie today as Brisbane looks like it’s being run by dumb and dumber.
1) What do you understand the G20 to be?: Australia’s most expensive talkfest ever
2) How might the G20 affect your community?: If G20 visitors judge Brisbane on it’s current state (a boring ghost town with most things closed) it could be the worst Brisbane tourism marketing ever.
3) What would you like to see come out of the G20?: tangible results
4) Any further thoughts?: Let other countries host it. The costs and inconvenience are huge and the benefits are highly questionable
