The intent is to collaboratively define complex challenges facing our local region. The challenges developed at the Workshop will become the centre of Smart Seeds, a program inviting fresh ideas from our region’s young talent. Further details about Smart Seeds is below.

Strategic thinkers from your industry and community organisations are invited to attend.

The intention is participants will both benefit and contribute to this workshop by having a good understanding of the cross-sector challenges facing our community, and the types of challenges where our future leaders can inject some ideas and inspiration. Furthermore, an outcome of the workshop will be to help identify local participants that can be approached and encouraged to participate in Smart Seeds.
