Be part of creating Tasmania's sustainability vision and goals.

All Tasmanians are invited to be part of creating a sustainability strategy for Tasmania. It takes all of us. This is your strategy to ensure the best of Tasmania for generations to come.

Two consultation papers are available to start the conversation. You can read these on the website or download them as PDF in the menu on the left.

The Short Consultation Paper introduces the main ideas of sustainability and why it's important. It's a quick and simple read and it asks three broad questions about what you hope for the future, what we need to do to get there and what you plan to do to live sustainably.

The Discussion Paper is more in-depth about how a sustainability strategy could be structured, introduces the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and asks more targeted questions about how you think Tasmania's Sustainability Strategy could be shaped to reflect the shared priorities and aspirations of Tasmanians.

You can choose to read and respond to one or both papers, depending on your time availability, and preferences. Written submissions may also be submitted below or by email to policy@dpac.tas.gov.au.

The closing date for submissions is extended to 20 October 2023 for developing the draft sustainability strategy.

Submissions received after this date will be valuable to the future work of the project. There will be further opportunities to contribute to the sustainability strategy as the project progresses.

What are your thoughts about sustainability and what we can do to make a better future for Tasmania?

The three questions below come from the Short Consultation Paper and are an opportunity for you to tell us what sustainability means to you and what you think are the main priorities for action.

What is your vision for a Sustainable Tasmania and what should we aspire to?

From the Discussion Paper, two questions ask about your vision for Tasmania's future and how you think we can achieve it. The last two questions ask whether Tasmania should adopt the Sustainable Development Goals or create our own, and how we should prioritise our efforts.
