Innovation and technology are changing the way we live and work, and with this change comes opportunity. BHP is working closely with the Shire of East Pilbara and the Newman community to understand and harness these opportunities, and to generate a vision of what the future of work, training and life will look like in Newman.
Collaborating with industry, innovators and government to explore how work is changing and how future work and supply chain opportunities can be supported and elevated.
EDUCATION AND TRAINING
What do jobs of the future look like and what are the pathways needed to get there? This focus area will work with schools, training providers and local leaders to map the conditions for success in future education and training pathways in Newman.
LIVEABILITY AND WELLBEING
Building a strong economy means supporting a happy, healthy and functioning community. This focus area will look at how the hard and soft infrastructure of Newman can be enriched to support a sustainable population in town.
CULTURE AND COUNTRY
With changes in technology come the opportunity to build upon and enhance language, culture and country to build cultural understanding and strengthen future generations.
