 Logan City Council-led initiatives

  • CityStudio Logan

CityStudio Logan is an experimental and innovative lab for the City of Logan where Council staff, community and students co-create projects to make Logan more joyful, liveable and sustainable.

By launching experimental projects on the ground, local university and school students are able to learn the skills they need to succeed in today’s economy, inspire action in the community and influence government. The CityStudio Logan program will place students within Logan City Council to complete real -world projects that will have positive impacts on the City of Logan. These projects will focus on areas including sustainability and health.

  • Advancing Regional Innovation Program

The Queensland Government established Advance Queensland as a flagship initiative to drive innovation in Queensland.  In doing so, the Advancing Regional Innovation Program (ARIP) was introduced. Through the program, Logan City Council has partnered with Redland City Council, Griffith University, Open Data Institute, TAFE Alexandra Hills, Little Tokyo 2, Community Information Spaces, Substation 33, Independent Social Enterprise Network and Global Community Resourcing to drive innovation in the Logan and Redland regions.

The collaboration seeks to harness innovation and unlock business potential, strengthening existing industries and preparing regional Queenslanders for jobs of the future.

ARIP aims to create a regional culture of innovation and entrepreneurship through coordinated innovation activities, provision of places and spaces, leadership, connectivity, education pathways, collaboration and connections. The goal of the program is to increase innovation across the region, facilitate the development of an innovation ecosystem, deepen the knowledge economy and improve productivity, employment and jobs growth in the region.
