Amplifying active citizenship across the regions

Published: January 27, 2023

This January 2023 the ADCSA team allocated 28 Ambassadors to Councils across SA including one Ambassador travelling to Tasmania.  Collectively our Ambassadors traversed over 9500 kms to connect with communities across our stunning state. As an Ambassador for January 2023 these community leaders were part of a rich storytelling and connection experience – the sharing of their unique lived experience promotes active citizenship and strengthens our communities.
