embracing innovation in our community

Community Priorities: Connectivity, Education, Diverse economy

An Innovation forum was held on Wednesday 13th November 2013 in Wanaka. The purpose of the forum was to gather like-minds and different thinking.  Over 70 forum attendees discussed What is Innovation?  What are the opportunities? Proposed innovation vision and potential steps to achieving the vision.  Despite initial interest Shaping our Future were unable to form a taskforce to further this forum topic.  However, we remain open to revisiting in the future.
