Regions Rising

Regions Rising is the Regional Australia Institute’s (RAI’s) national event series, running since 2019.

It is an engagement program, made up of in-person and virtual events,  through which the RAI presents its research on regional issues to promote dialogue and thought leadership.

The Regions Rising event series brings together industry experts, economists, regional leaders, government, political leaders, academics and the community sector to deliver the latest information on the key pillars affecting regional communities - including jobs and skills, housing, population, liveability, productivity and resilience.

We look forward to once again hitting the road in 2023 to key regional cities across the country in Northern Territory (NT), Western Australia (WA), South Australia (SA), New South Wales (NSW) and Tasmania (TAS).

Regions Rising 2023 is sponsored by NBN Co and we thank them for their valued support.
