City of Ballarat, City of Casey, City of Whittlesea and Collective Campus are offering a unique opportunity for startups to solve real challenges and hone a viable solution with the tools, support and funding of Councils.
We are striving to create compact neighbourhoods within our communities. A compact neighbourhood is one where residents have the ability to meet most of their everyday needs within a short time frame from their home. We are looking to improve community traffic and transport to enable all residents to have their everyday needs met within a short time frame.
We're interested in solutions that can help us reduce traffic, improve transportation and better understand movement within our communities. Such solutions may include, but would not be limited to, big data, artificial intelligence, last-mile transportation and IoT.
In the most recent Australian National Waste Report, it was found that Australia generates more waste and also recycles less than the average country (when compared with a selection of other developed economies). In 2016-17 Australia generated an estimated 67 million tonnes of waste, which is equivalent to 2.7 tonnes of waste per person.
We're interested in solutions that can help our community create more sustainable households and reduce the amount of waste that they produce. Such solutions may include, but would not be limited to, data analytics, artificial intelligence, online platforms, logistics and social impact platforms.
Now more than ever, Councils are placing an importance on healthy eating, regular exercise and mental wellbeing of residents. Many families within our communities are struggling to maintain a healthy lifestyle, especially given the ease of access to unhealthy food options and limited motivation to exercise. We are looking to create supportive environments for healthy choices.
We're interested in solutions that can help us create better opportunities for our residents to access healthy food options, including fresh fruit and vegetables, and be physically active within our communities. Such solutions may include, but would not be limited to, virtual reality, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, online platforms and sustainable food options.
