Across Australia, we talk to communities about their priorities for development. These priority areas come up regularly and have directed our investment:

  1. Local communities want their young people to have meaningful jobs
  2. Many First Nation groups want pathways to real jobs, to strengthen their cultural identity and to share their own future through good governance
  3. Regional communities want to have diverse, thriving economies

Accordingly, Shell has invested in:
