What is WeConnect?

The Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority is the peak natural resource management body in the Goulburn Broken Catchment responsible for developing and overseeing the implementation of the Regional Catchment Strategy.

Please visit our public website for more information About Us

WeConnect is a new interactive website to help you get involved in natural resource management strategy planning for the Goulburn Broken Catchment.

WeConnect has three components:

  1. Library   - Collection of supporting information
  2. Blog    - Stories, Update and News
  3. Strategies  - An online, live DRAFT of our key strategies

Please read the About WeConnect for more information on the purpose of WeConnect.

What is a wiki and why are we using one?

A wiki is series of linked on-line documents that anyone can edit and discuss. It allows us to engage with a number of people and groups simultaneously and get comments and discussion on the Regional Catchment Strategy while we are preparing it. It does not replace the usual process where a draft plan is released for formal comment.

Why should I create an account on WeConnect?

All users will be able to read blogs, library content, discussions and strategies as they are made publicly available.
If you create an account, you will be able to add comments to blogs, library content and be able to provide direct input into our strategies during key times of consultation. This is a great opportunity to raise and discuss issues with other users and the Authority’s staff and have your say directly into our strategies.

We will also send email updates to all registered users at key times throughout the process.
