What is this survey for?

Since publishing the agenda in early 2017, there have been many developments across the Australian economy, as well as within the Spatial industry itself. This survey aims to understand who is engaging with the 2026Agenda, what progress has been made on the Agenda initiatives, and what changes might be made to ensure the Agenda stays relevant, up to date and ambitious.

About the 2026Agenda

The 2026 Spatial Industry Transformation and Growth Agenda (2026Agenda) is a whole-of-sector initiative encompassing businesses, government, academia and spatial-user organisations, that emerges as a transformational opportunity for the spatial sector to jointly design its best future. 

The 2026Agenda started in July 2016, and has since engaged more than 400 individuals directly - including individual interviews with spatial leaders, co-designed Leadership Forums in all Australian capital cities, and an outside sector consultation involving key representatives of priority sectors such as agriculture, health, transport or energy, amongst others. The 2026Agenda is a rolling agenda that will evolve and change with time, in order to accommodate the evolving priorities and challenges of the spatial sector.
