Who knows what opportunities could prevail from community sourcing our solutions.

Council hosts an ongoing online forum - an IdeasFest, for the whole community to contribute and share their ideas publicly; and to potentially have them selected by participants to be used to at our next HackFest in November -where they could transform into life.

Council invites ideas, a solution or mobile application that would benefit the Coast community and ideas that will help solve a community or business issue.
