With one week to go until it closes, CRDC is encouraging all people who live and work in cotton communities to participate in the 2020 Regional Wellbeing Survey.

The survey, which is conducted annually by the University of Canberra, measures the wellbeing of people living in rural and regional Australia. Taking part in the survey enables those in regional areas to have their say on issues ranging from how local communities are changing, to individual health and wellbeing. 

This year, for the first time, the survey is specifically looking at cotton community wellbeing, through support from CRDC. All involved in the cotton industry, plus those who live and work in towns where cotton is grown, are asked to participate in the survey to get a clear picture on the wider community wellbeing.

The results will help inform the next step in the cotton industry's sustainability journey: the setting of cotton's 'social' sustainability targets. 

The survey is voluntary, confidential and anonymous, and closes on 30 Oct. Participate now at www.regionalwellbeing.org.au.
