Project Description


The ACT’s Wellbeing Framework 2021 declares that education and life-long learning are important measures for individual wellbeing.

According to the 2020 OnTrack survey, 6.4% of Victorian school leavers are looking for work twelve months later. DataACT’s Picture 2018 also revealed there that 8% of young people ages 15-24 are unemployed and a further 16% are underemployed. So there is a s erious need for linking improved educational and career outcomes across Australia.

Another one of the ACT’s wellbeing domains is environmental and climate outcomes. Using the Moreton Bay Regional Council’s datahub, we reviewed the overlap between designated environmental management zones and community centres, identifying that many community centres are in close proximity to designated conservation zones such as Deception and Saltwater Creeks. This introduces the possibility of community centres being a hub for individuals to participate in conservation activities while improving their digital skills.

Demand for these skills is increasing rapidly for businesses and communities. People are eager to learn, but sometimes lack opportunity or means. The solution is to connect businesses, communities, and individuals together. By identifying eligible grants and co-working opportunities, our app can make those connections.

Data Story


For this project, we started by exploring the Queensland Digital skills challenge in particular ways we can find underutilised or marginalised skills. We used mainly Queensland based datasets which we crosslinked with national datasets from the census in 2011, 2016 and 2021.

To validate our idea we looked at how it integrated into three regional use cases: Canberra via the ACT Wellbeing Framework, DataVic using the OnTrack school leavers survey and Moreton Bay looking at environmental regenerative projects.
