People, parks & wellbeing: Innovation in Ageing
This challenge aims to help increase visitors to our parks. We want more people aged 50+ enjoying our State’s flora and fauna. We are looking for ways to attract more visitors aged 50+ to our parks to support active and healthy ageing.
Participants will demonstrate the potential to grow a business that addresses health and wellbeing for people in their 50s and beyond, and builds a community that cares for parks.
Does this interest you? Are you interested in innovating for change? Do you have skills and capability that can help solve this complex problem? Then this is the challenge for you.
If you want to help come up with digital solutions, join us in D3 Challenge #5. Registrations are open until 12 pm Thursday 23 February 2017.
There are a number of great resources that you'll be able to access for this challenge.
