About the network

ConnectingQ is a network of individuals working across disciplines, sectors and regions in Queensland who are focused on creating active and healthy communities. We share resources that enable and empower individuals to connect across sectors and disciplines. We use stories and archives to establish and engage in meaningful exchange. We host and promote virtual online events to support learning with practical tools and engaging content. Members of the network bring diverse knowledge, expertise and goals that may include creating or leveraging:

  • healthy, active liveable or inclusive communities
  • healthy food environments
  • food security or healthy eating
  • community engagement
  • research
  • planning or design
  • communications, or
  • policy development.

ConnectingQ is supported by Health and Wellbeing Queensland

Health and Wellbeing Queensland (HWQld) believes the network can foster partnerships that create and amplify policy and actions that achieve real, measurable improvements for the health of every Queenslander. ConnectingQ is a key element of Queensland’s response to the Australian Government’s National Obesity Strategy with the ambition to create supportive, sustainable and healthy environments for all Queenslanders.


How we work

HWQld is on a journey to work with you to listen and learn together and create a practical network and tools that connect and support all those who can help create healthy places for all Queenslanders to live, learn work and play. We started the journey with people like you. Our approach to working with you to build the network has focused on building a deep understanding of what potential members might need and use this to guide our exploration into future online and in-person opportunities.


What we do

Communities that put healthy choices within the reach of Queenslanders are essential to reducing health inequities across the state. ConnectingQ addresses the importance of place by connecting the many and varied people across disciplines, sectors and regions who are actively creating environments that make it easier to lead healthier lives.
