Ideas on the Fleurieu is a community-led initiative aimed at bringing people together from across the Fleurieu Peninsula to voice their vision and ideas for our beautiful region.


We want to:

  • Empower the Community

  • Foster a strong regional identity and sense of belonging

  • Find common ground

  • Inspire curiosity

  • Develop a shared vision for the future of the Fleurieu region

  • Encourage dialogue and debate (we don't have to agree on everything!)

  • Honour the good work already being done

  • Identify priorities for future civic action

  • Strengthen community networks and working relationships

  • Build a culture of connection, learning, and mobilisation for the public good

We're doing this via a series of events being held across the Fleurieu throughout 2018 and 2019 at which community members can share their ideas for the region.


The visions put forward will be shared via social media, this website and Fleurieu Living Magazine.

We will hear from the thinkers, creators, makers and dreamers of the Fleurieu who will have opportunities for discourse and debate via panel discussions, presentations and other engagement techniques.


At the conclusion of the event series, we will produce a booklet summarising the ideas and themes to emerge. This will be available here and in Fleurieu Living Magazine.


We will conclude with a major event at which we will share what we have learnt and provide seed funding to help transform some of the best ideas into action.​​​

We will also establish a Fleurieu chapter of the Awesome Foundation to continue funding people's awesome ideas for the Fleurieu into the future. www.awesomefoundation.org/en
