The Department of Science, Information Technology and Innovation invites Sunshine Coast reididents to be part of the Advance Queensland Community Digital Champions Program by identifying and recognising outstanding individuals in the community.
The digital world is an integral part of Queensland’s economy, one that needs to be embraced in order to create jobs of the future, attract investment, build prosperity and improve our lives and lifestyles.
Congratulations to the Sunshine Coast’s Mic Black, one of Queensland’s 10 inaugural Community Digital Champions
The program, developed in collaboration with community, business/industry and government, aims to encourage Queenslanders to explore and enjoy the benefits of the digital age – through the stories and activities of inspirational champions.
Champions may come from all walks of life and may represent a business, industry, community or demographic group in Queensland. They will be outstanding individuals who are positive role models and want to ‘give back’ to their communities.
Champions (nominees) will be conducting activities or prepared to work with their nominating group, to undertake activities that help improve Queensland’s digital literacy and digital adoption.
Minister for Housing and Public Works and Minister for Science and Innovation, The Hon Leeanne Enoch announced 10 inaugural Champions at the launch of the program on 3 November 2015 at the State Library of Queensland. In most cases these champions had little to no background in digital technologies – they simply had a need and found a digital solution. The Champions are now wanting to help other Queenslanders be more digitally savvy.
