Kitchen Table Discussion Guide: Wild Horse Management Plan Review

Submit your Kitchen Table Discussion before 12 December 2014 to go in the draw to WIN an ALL PARKS PASS valued at $190. 

Thank you for hosting a Kitchen Table Discussion. You can download and print the guide or use this online submission to guide and submit your discussion.

Kitchen Table Discussions form a part of our broader community engagement process and are made up of a small group of people who get together to talk in an informal setting. 

Anyone can host a discussion. All you need to do is bring together a group of people who are willing to share and discuss ideas. 

You could meet around a kitchen table, lounge room, in a classroom, as part of your regular community meeting or in a coffee shop. 

Participants don't need to be experts on the subject, just have a willingness to listen and to share ideas that are aimed at developing solutions that could work for everybody. 

The host will guide people through the agenda and your group may opt to use a talking object which can indicate who the current speaker is at a given time. Use this online submission form to record the opinions and different views and submit. 

The information that comes out of your discussion and is submitted here will be used to help review and shape the new five year wild horse management plan for Kosciuszko.
