The 2020 WACOSS conference will be a space to explore the crossroads the WA community service sector, and wider society, currently find ourselves at. Against a backdrop of increasing social divides, wealth inequities, uncertain climate futures, and continued colonial impacts, we want to ensure a future where everyone can reach their potential and where no-one is left behind.
Like the Nyoongar concept of djenna bidi, journeying together, we need to build and walk pathways forward in unity, here on Nyoongar Boodja where we are gathering and elsewhere. Engaging all our resources, senses, capacities – kart, koort, wirrin, maar (head, heart, spirit, hand) – will be central to constructing new futures. It also means knowing our pasts, telling their truths.
We are at a juncture. It is critical now, more than ever, that we mobilise our collective efforts to establish the foundations for more cohesive communities, more effective social service systems, more collaborative and joined-up service design and delivery.
Finding Ground: Building a better way together will be the space to explore these crossroads, as we navigate the challenges and create pathways for a better future.
