FUTURE IPSWICH: Work together with leaders to grow Ipswich

DURING the past two-and-a-half weeks, the QT has been painting a picture about how our city will look in the future.

But we know it's not enough just to give you data and predictions about population growth.

We know we need to work together with our city's current leaders and advocates in order to put in place plans to make the most of the opportunity we have in front of us.

WHILE working as a lecturer and course co-ordinator at QUT around 2003, Robert Dow began to notice students regularly struggling to get to class on time. At the time Brisbane was bus-centric and rail was neglected so he began the advocacy group 'Back on Track'. The group began churning out press releases in 2004 about the air train and next thing you know he is on ABC talking about it.
