Some background to chew over.

There are eighty-one suburbs in the City of Gold Coast, a local government area in Queensland, Australia. The local government area has been amended several times since its creation in 1948, most dramatically by its amalgamation in 1994 with the Shire of Albert, and losing a section centred on Beenleigh north of the Albert River to Logan City in March 2008.
Fifty-two are gazetted as suburbs and twenty-nine as localities. Many suburbs have been established on reclaimed land including saltmarshes, mangroves and tidal flats. Some of these suburbs have developed extensive canal waterways. There are many shopping centres on the Gold Coast.

It’s the Villagers that build the villages that create community.

The Suburb is a geographic fence on the map.
Local governments and developers build suburbs to house people.

The Village is the ecosystem
The Village is the collective of the people that come together within the suburb, the living ecosystem within the suburb.

The Villagers.
People become Villagers when they come together around shared values, visions and aspirations. They are prepared to share the responsibility and and load that comes with this. Villagers are citizens at the centre of society and its community. Healthy Happy Citizens, generate Healthy Prosperous Community and Society.

Putting it all back together 
Society has always been a bottom up equation beginning with the Villager at its centre. A reset beginning with the basic Villager needs is a great start.

The Consumer divergence
The rise and rise of the “Consumer” has seen the demise of the citizen.
Consumers consume and move on quickly without responsibility or the need for an enduring village connection.
Citizens  and Villagers create responsibility and enduring values, Villagers need Villages.
The Village foundations have been decimated by the rise and rise of the consumer in recent decades.

Simplicity
We Villagers crave simplicity, belonging and control and we also have a need to express and share this.
Every Village is unique in it’s lifestyle, recognising and acknowledging this crystallizes and clarifies, it helps pull people together around clear messaging and outcomes. Simplicity builds great community and more livable city environments.

Join the Destination Villages Family
We need you – the greater community of the Gold Coast will benefit if we  Villagers begin by rebuilding our Villages, then connecting with each other.
We invite you to join your village community effort to the Destination Village model.
