Generate Network (AUS)

Proudly sponsored by Otium Planning Group, the Generate Network is Parks and Leisure Australia’s (PLA) commitment to the development of our young professionals and emerging leaders. Driving our work is our vision for ‘More parks and recreation go-getters for generations to come’.

About Us

The Generate Network is a launch pad for up and coming parks and recreation go-getters! We break down the barriers of hierarchy, geography, age and economic status and provide a network for up and coming young professionals in our industry to connect, learn and grow. We connect and engage people new to the industry and anyone looking for their next leap forward. We provide a platform for people to have a voice, to network and engage in professional development opportunities.
