As a policy concern, sustainability is widely recognised, but making policy for sustainability is far from straightforward because it cuts across two characteristic features of policy work in government: bureaucracy and specialisation. The OEeD has stressed that closer attention is needed to governance practices if sustainability is to be moved from rhetoric to real action and real change. This chapter examines an innovative exercise in policy-making in Tasmania, called Tasmania together, which pursued the policy goal of sustain ability through widespread participation of those outside government, including both private organisations and individual members of the community
