What is the Newman Futures Project?

What is the Newman Futures project?

Newman Futures was launched in 2019 to build a diverse and sustainable economy that is inclusive to all. 

A new economic era has emerged in the Pilbara with the adoption of new technology  changing production patterns, business models and the nature of work. These changes hold great promise if industry, government, stakeholders and the community build a common vision for inclusive and sustainable growth.

We know that a strong and connected community is essential to drive economic growth and diversity. A community where everyone feels included, valued and walks together with mutual respect is one that has the power to create transformational change in social and economic development

The strength of Newman Futures lies in common agreements and  the commitment of stakeholders to work together to embrace opportunities. Together, we identified and developed four key strategies that will form the foundations to build a strong, cohesive and sustainable Newman for future generations.

Newman and South Newman Primary School students are integrating the latest digital technologies across all their subjects with the delivery of the EducationFutures program at both schools. EducationFutures is a Newman Futures initiative, working closely with educators, Newman schools, and industry, to create a STEM program that will upskill and prepare Newman students with transitional pathways in technologies from Kindergarten to Year 12.
