How can we create a diverse and flourishing planet for generations to come?
Using Open Data from a variety of sources, help us create a sustainable future and protect our local flora and fauna. Ideas and examples could include tracking and monitoring the health of our local Koalas (some great data on this topic!), circular economy solutions, urban heat island effect, through to climate change mitigation strategies. All ideas welcome, and remember to focus on our region!
This is one of three Moreton Bay specific challenges put together by a consortium of business, education and government organisations, all passionate about our local region. We will have a group of USC Moreton Bay students participating on campus at Petrie Mill alongside local innovators, and we encourage you to join with them in putting a spotlight on our region.
• Council has been tracking Koalas at Petrie Mill for a number of years, and has data sets available that provide location and count information
• Council has a number of climate sensors around the region
• BOM has a weather station at Redcliffe which can be accessed for free via BOM.gov.au
Eligibility: Open to everyone, preference will be given to those providing solutions using at least one local Moreton Bay data set.
Entry: Challenge entry is available to all teams in Australia.
