Ingenuity welcomed in Bellingen

AS part of this year’s North Coast NSW Innovation Festival, new and creative ideas will be presented in Bellingen from 3-6pm today.

The three-hour Think Tank will bring together young people, local business and key industry stakeholders to explore innovative and creative opportunities, which will sustain our local communities, our local environment and our local economy. The session is open to anyone that has a great idea and wishes to have their concepts tested.

The Think Tank will be led by Sue Lennox one of Australia’s most innovative thinkers and a leader in the sustainability revolution. Sue is a Bellingen resident and founder of OzGREEN. Her business takes her all over Australia and overseas working with youth, communities and corporations both large and small to develop a more sustainable approach. After the session, a networking night will be held to allow for further discussions and exchange of ideas.

The Think Tank is being organised by the Bellingen Sustainable Business Alliance (BSBA) – an initiative of Bellingen Chamber of Commerce, Bellingen Shire Council and OzGREEN and is one of the events organised for Bellingen Shire as part of the North Coast NSW Innovation Festival.

“A key concern identified by local businesses at the inaugural BSBA Forums held in 2009 was the issue of youth unemployment,” said Guy Saddleton President of Bellingen Chamber of Commerce. “The Think Tank will bring together young people and the business community to see what we can innovate together.”

If you are interested in attending please contact Stuart Allardice on 6655 7306 or sallardice@bellingen.nsw.gov.au
