Community growth and recovery

Jurisdiction: Australian Capital Territory

Local economies, particularly the hospitality and tourism sectors, have been hit hard this year with the bushfires and the effects of COVID-19. These challenges have a far reaching impact on our local communities. How might we help communities recover by encouraging people to engage safely with local businesses?

2020 has been a tough year. We’ve faced floods, damaging hailstorms, devastating bushfires and the effects of COVID-19. As a result, local economies and communities have experienced disruptions which will be felt for years to come. Particularly hard hit are our hospitality, tourism and entertainment sectors - which make a significant contribution to our community culture, wellbeing and standards of living. How might we take a data driven approach to help local communities recover?

Additional Information:

We think data in the categories of health and community facilities and services might be particularly relevant. For example see these ACT datasets:

https://www.data.act.gov.au/browse?category=Infrastructure+and+Utilities
https://actmapi-actgov.opendata.arcgis.com/search?tags=Community%20Facilities%20and%20Assets

However, we encourage teams to be creative and use any relevant datasets they know of or find.

Entry: Challenge entry is available to all teams in Australia.
