Top 100 ideas 2021 copy

A Positive Pandemic Plan was by far the most popular idea shared by IdeaSpies in 2021. It was posted in June 2021, before the Australian Government announced their Pandemic Plan. Many commented on the Plan to help improve it. The ideas in the final Plan seem obvious now however, at the time, they were not. There are quite a few ideas to deal with COVID in this list.

There are also many ideas that were posted by design and technology students who responded to the UpRising initiative in NSW schools. The 2022 program has started and students would love your comments on their UpRising ideas posted this year.
