Explore Challenges & Courses...
Challenges are potential areas that people like you, across the region, feel need fresh and innovative thinking.
Like and comment on other people's Challenges to show support and increase its chance of being included in a Course, or submit a Challenge of your own and recruit likeminded people.
When a challenge has gathered enough support, a relevant Course will be created.
These courses will offer community members the chance to work together, utilising design-thinking as a medium of tackling the Challenge in an innovative way.
Innovating Communities will support and facilitate the group over a 10 or 20 week Course.
