Shaolin is a Buddhist belief focused on people living in harmony with nature. Urbis worked closely with the Shaolin Temple Foundation (Australia) to engage stakeholders and members of the community in its plans for a Temple and tourist complex in South Nowra.

The complex will provide a spiritual retreat for people connected to the Shaolin movement. The project had been in the public domain for six years and had been subject to some community opposition. Changes to the plans sought to reduce impacts on neighbours, so Urbis started from a position of clearly explaining the features and benefits of the revised proposal.

Urbis developed a proactive engagement and media strategy which was instrumental in building trust amongst the community.
