The G21 Pillar Groups are at the heart of all the work G21 undertakes, driving ideas from within the community. There are eight Pillar Groups based on our region’s key priorities:
- Arts & Culture
- Economic Development,
- Education & Training,
- Health & Wellbeing,
- Planning & Services
- Sport & Recreation, and
Pillars are made up of key decision makers and subject experts within the specific Pillar categories. They volunteer their time and expertise and meet on a regular basis, working to identify and drive projects that will contribute to the implementation of the 'G21 Geelong Region Plan’, thus improving the regional community. There are more than 300 Pillar group members.
G21 also has several Working Groups and Taskforces to address key issues confronting our region. Examples include, or have included, the Volunteering Strategy Working Group, the G21 Agribusiness Forum, a Bicycle Infrastructure Group and the G21 Climate Change Taskforce. These groups can include Pillar and non-Pillar members.
