This paper reports on two online events hosted by Our Watch in partnership with Ending Violence against Women Queensland (EVAWQ) on 13 May 2021, as part of the National Primary Prevention Hub.

  1. A webinar with panel discussions that situated primary prevention in the Queensland context including a local primary prevention case study (Men4Respect), as well as a best-practice primary prevention initiative in Victoria (Preventing Violence Together).
  2. An interactive discussion forum was held with practitioners from Queensland to reflect on challenges and opportunities in their work specific to the local context. Participants engaged in breakout rooms to discuss opportunities for primary prevention in Queensland including:

– integrating a primary prevention approach in their work

– ideas for the future

– what needs to change in the Queensland context to enable progress on primary prevention.

This paper summarises the case studies and key themes that emerged during both events to promote information and knowledge sharing across the sector.
