The Goodness Festival overall objective is to inspire and engage people in science, sustainability and innovation engagement activities through a week-long festival of activities. We have specific purposes aligned with National Science Week, Pollinators and Scinapse strategies.
- Purpose 1: To spark broad interest in science, sustainability and innovation — using everyday activities and interests as a entry point for deeper experiences and understanding.
- Purpose 2: To help move those who are simply interested to become engaged — partnering with locals to create pathways to ongoing engagement in community or research activities.
- Purpose 3: To provide opportunities for all — ensuring a mix of the types, timing and level of activities and the way in which they are promoted.
- Purpose 4: To foster partnerships between the community, research organisations and industry — working practically together on themes, activities to achieve mutual outcomes.
- Purpose 5: To trial new engagement methods and showcase innovative content— use technology for webcasting and outreach, sharing pitches, ideas and innovations.
