Bee Wise with BeesWax Wraps
Project by clare kwok
How can we reduce the amount of single use plastic waste without making people feel they have to make a drastic lifestyle change? learning from the backlash with the single use plastic bag ban, it seems people dont like change if the alternative means inconvience. Take cling wrap as an example, we can only decrease use of this single use item by providing a viable alternative. The answer - Beeswax wraps. This is a product already on the market, but as it is relatively unknown and only available in limited retailers, it is still seen as a "luxury", "designer" item. My idea is to make this product more mainstream in 2 ways. 1. create a community work shop where people learn to make their own 2. create a pop up shop at these work shop for retailers to sell their beeswax wrap products. This can be a community engagement activity, bringing people together and collectively doing good. It is always easier to do good, when its fun!
Creativity- A disease you want to catch
Project by Lou Rose
A skill swap market where people can learn a new creative skill and in return share a creative skill they have. This can be anything from leather craft to cooking to fire twirling or learning an instrument- the possibilities are endless. A fun way to broaden & share your knowledge, learn a new skill, meet & connect with new people whilst supporting and being part of Melbourne's thriving creative community.
Edinburgh Gardens Sporting Community
Project by Wayne Stephens
Edinburgh Gardens Sporting Community The Edinburgh Gardens Sporting Community is a collective of: · Fitzroy/Carlton Auskick · Fitzroy Football Club · Fitzroy Junior Football Club · Fitzroy Tennis Club · Edinburgh Cricket Club These clubs utilise a cluster of facilities within Edinburgh Gardens that incorporate the historic grandstand, community rooms and tennis pavilion. The ESGC have recognised a common set of issues attributed to this precinct that will constrain their ability to grow and promote community participation into the future. With the local population growing and female participation on the rise, the community’s passion for local sport is not met with facilities that are fit for purpose. Current facilities do not provide adequate space to participate, spectate or perform the administrative functions that support the day-to-day running of the clubs. The current scenario has culminated in two distinct problems that the EGSC hope can be addressed: · Enormous demand on shared facilities restricts the ability of clubs to foster and grow community participation · Outdated facilities stifle the precinct’s potential to be a leading example of community sport in Victoria Challenge 1: Enormous demand on shared facilities restricts the ability of clubs to foster and grow community participation · Clubs are reaching capacity. · Female participation is intensifying. · Demand on facilities is rising. Challenge 2: Outdated facilities stifle the precinct’s potential to be a leading example of community sport in Victoria · Current facilities are not fit for purpose. · The financial sustainability of clubs is at risk.
WiFi - Free for All
Project by Hun Lin Neo
Free 24/7 WiFi at all train stations and public transport nodes across Victoria. Can potentially be extended to trains, buses and trams. Wifi can be sponsored by council or businesses to create awareness or to promote business. Would be highly beneficial to the community.
Better Than Apple!
Project by Hang Jiang
Over 15,000 people who care about our city's future had signed the petition to stop Apple building a "global flagship store" at Federation Square, the most significant public space in Melbourne CBD. The government had promised to review the proposal facing the backlashes from the public but the future of the Yarra Building remains uncertain. "Better Than Apple" can be a crowd-founded alternative proposition for the future use of the Yarra Building. It will start with symposiums engaging the public to determine what the project should be. When it becomes reality, it sure will be Better Than Apple!

Foreign aged people community support
Project by Chuncheng Zhang
They are fathers and mothers. They are here for reunion with their beloved children who enjoys and contribute to Australia. But they are lonely as well, they don’t know the language and culture, don’t know how to join activities. We need volunteers to help them to know others, to know where to seek help and pursue their wellbeing and even help others with the same situation in the area.
