Stimulating action on the things Australians care most about

What is My Big Idea?

My Big Idea was a nationwide ideas competition focused on creating positive change for Australia. We asked Australians to submit ideas on ways to improve aspects of our country that the community said it cared most about: from how to boost economic growth, to how to care for the disadvantaged, to how to reduce damage to our natural environment. You submitted 1,200 ideas and voted for the ones you liked most. The top 100 ideas went to a judging panel, with 12 winners now being brought to life thanks to the winners and support from some of Australia’s leading organisations.
