This ‘in focus’ edition of JOSI was inspired by the first Changefest, a gathering of diverse peoples intent on making a change within their communities (in Australia). Hosted by Logan Together, Collaboration for Impact, Opportunity Child and Griffith University in the city of Logan 2018, this event was born from a shared belief in the power of bringing together local people with the institutions that serve them to collectively take ownership of a problem, shared priorities and to tackle local issues using local knowledge and experience to create long term positive change.
