STRUCTURE OF THE PUBLICATION
This publication is divided into three sections:
Section one contains an overview of the consultation process. Each chapter in this section reviews a different channel of input into the consultation.
Each chapter provides some background and broadly describes the process undertaken to capture the views presented in the chapter. The chapters highlight relevant or illustrative projects and draw out common or notable themes. The chapters include a selection of verbatim comments from participants, to give a flavour of the nature of the feedback received.
In addition, this section includes consultation spotlights. These highlight the diversity of views raised by a wide range of organisations.
Section two of the publication draws all the consultation information together, setting out a list of aspirations reflecting the views of Australians on national progress. It sets out the aspiration statements, associated elements and a short description that clarifies the ideas expressed. The descriptions also aims to give a sense of how the aspiration statements evolved.
Section three contains supporting documentation for the publication. Here, in the interest of transparency, we have listed relevant documents and other material that may be of interest. This section also provides references for material used in the publication.
