These ideas will change your world


What brave new worlds can we look forward to? How will our ageing population change our priorities and habits? What options will we find for eliminating malnutrition in developing nations? Or obesity in our own?

After a decade of investment in encouraging Queenslanders from all walks of life and all areas of interest to work, play and live smarter, what progress have we made in creating a state of ideas and innovation? “Intelligent Queensland’ ought not be only a government priority, but a business, industry and community priority.
