Community opportunities

Schools Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) partnership

In recent years, the South Australian Government has invested significantly in STEM programs across all its schools. The R2P Alliance will partner with schools located close to, or affected by, the project to help bring construction into the classroom and provide real world engineering problems.

Involving schools in the R2P Project also helps increase community understanding of the complexities and requirements of large and complex infrastructure projects. It also fosters future interest in STEM careers and invests in South Australian based skills.

If you are a local school that would like to work with the R2P Alliance on STEM projects, please contact us.

Community Development

Opportunities to work with the community during the R2P Project helps to develop strong relationships and community ownership of the project, and also helps to offset construction impacts. R2P Alliance staff work within the local community to deliver local infrastructure outcomes and it is important to R2P that our staff become part of the community in which we work.

The R2P Alliance team is always looking for opportunities to contribute to community events, local charitable causes, volunteering, in-kind assistance to community groups, buying local, sponsorships and other opportunities.

If you would like to talk to the R2P Alliance about community development opportunities in your area, please contact us.

Creative activation

Whilst R2P ultimately will result in improved amenity, new landscaping and urban design improvements, the amenity and a community’s sense of connection to a place can be affected by temporary fencing, access changes and site clearance during construction.

R2P works closely with local communities to make sure places remain as appealing as possible during construction. Initiatives can include temporary art displays and installations, events, community activities and events, come and try days, screens, signage, and viewing areas.
