A wave costs nothing

A FRIENDLY wave can make someone’s day, and that is exactly what the Glenorchy City Council is hoping to achieve through its “Wave Action” initiative.

Developed in partnership with the Glenorchy Suicide Prevention Network, Can Do Community – Family Violence Initiative and members of the community, Wave Action is seeking to implement events such as “Wave Day” – a community connectedness concept where people acknowledge each other’s presence.

The concept of Wave Action and Wave Day is to encourage people to interact with others – to get to know their neighbours and to actually see and acknowledge the people in the community.

Wave Day can act as a way to generate community conversations about suicide prevention, family and domestic violence, safer communities and wellbeing.

A wave costs nothing and translates across all cultures.

A Wave Action workshop will be held on Tuesday 1 August, with a follow up meeting on 5 September at 1pm.

If you are interested in becoming involved or to find out more information, please contact Lisa Rudd via email at lrudd@gcc.tas.gov.au or phone 6216 6800.
