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.
Yearly Summer Pavilion
Project by Matthieu Begoghina
What is better to bring people together than building together? The Yearly Summer Pavilion is a project with the goal of involving the community into thinking, designing and finally building a public pavilion that would last all summer. It will become the symbol of our community and a great place to hang out! This space could also be hosting some events to discuss about current issues of our society and how we could make it better. For this first version, I am proposing an library with an outdoor play area. This could fit in a 3x3m open space (or more) next to our townsquare. Let's make ourselves proud, let's build a great Summer Pavilion!

No more disposable cups!
Project by Olivia Goodliffe
An incentive or competition between cafes to reduce the amount of disposable cups used. The cafes could reduce the price of coffees in keep cups. The aim is to have cafes with no disposable cups. Disposable cups are not recyclable and end up in landfill. Many cafes are not aware of how much harm this is doing to the planet and are carelessly using two cups (double cup) for each customer! 'The war on waste' television show began to address these issues.
