We invite you to help Launceston become one of the great regional cities of the world.

Often it is the little things that can make a difference. Some challenges and opportunities are more complex and need support.

That is why we have come up with the Great Regional City Challenge. We warmly invite you and your community to become actively engaged in making Launceston one of the great regional cities of the world. So please, if you're not already, help to make this region the best it can be.

YOUR PROJECT could get part of a $100,000 prize fund plus project support.


Idea #1. Added by steptoe1957 | 1 month ago

I would like to be involved in a community run business that raises money for the local community. A community hub that may include an opportunity shop and repair cafe. Managed entirely by a committee of volunteers and trying to involve as many volunteers as possible, both men and women. The town of Sheffield in Tasmania has a proven business model. Money raised could help many groups that struggle to get funding, one being performing arts theatre.

A great idea and worthy of further exploration. Do you know any other motivate people who may like to help make something like this happen?

Sounds a great idea. Why not get a bunch of locals who are interested plus reach out to Sheffield to get more details on their model then apply some support from the Great Regional City Challenge. Only 200 words for the application I'm helping coordinate the Challenge and would be happy to run my eye over a draft application. Good luck!

We'd be happy to help you form a non-profit association and get a committee organised. Do you have any ideas on where the premises might be? You could start it up on a temporary basis to trial the idea first. Maybe a Saturday repair cafe out the back of a friendly cafe or shop in town?
