Our city is a vibrant, liveable and a logical home for the Australian Chiropractic College.
South Australia is embarking on a new phase of health promotion, with a spotlight on complementary therapies for community wellbeing. In 2012, the state government engaged Professor Martin Seligman as its 24th Thinker in Residence. His mandate; to help South Australian communities flourish by fostering resilience, health and wellbeing in young people.
His three main recommendations were:
- Position South Australia as the state of wellbeing
- Measure the wellbeing of all residents of South Australia
- Teach, build and embed wellbeing science in South Australia
- While the agenda particularly targets mental health, the synergy with chiropractic principles is clear.
A CITY OF LEARNING
Education is a key driver of economic growth in Adelaide and educational initiatives receive funding to match. The Adelaide city council’s Economically Prosperous City Strategy 2012-2016 describes education as:
A major industry sector and driver of economic growth in South Australia and the City of Adelaide. The growth experienced in this sector has positively changed the life, culture and vitality of the city while also contributing significantly to the growth of other industry sectors. Education is a sector that uniquely positions Adelaide in a global context as a quality brand proposition and study destination in the competitive international education marketplace.
Funding and support is readily available for businesses such as the Australian Chiropractic College who may fit this description.
