Flood of Ideas is designed to draw on the shared wisdom and experience in the community and broaden the public debate about floods.
Anyone can submit an idea, however inventive or unusual. We want to hear the ideas of planners, engineers, urban designers, architects, scientists, students and anyone with a good idea. We want to hear from those that experienced the January floods, from those with knowledge and experience of the past floods, and from those with Indigenous knowledge of the traditional use of the land.
Ideas can be grandiose or humble, at the scale of the catchment or the scale of a house. Ideas might include infrastructure solutions, a new building design, or a policy idea, or a way we can address the emotional fallout. Whatever your idea, we want to hear and see it.
Flood of Ideas can help ensure community involvement in the recovery and restoration process by using a contemporary crowd-sourcing approach to identifying innovative strategies to make our community more flood resilient.
Flood of Ideas will help governments at all levels to access the wisdom of the community and ensure the future flood resilience of Queensland. It will also build community resilience to future flooding by connecting people from diverse backgrounds, from the design professional to the homeowner, to share ideas directly and take action to ensure their own future preparedness.
