Why participate?

I have ideas and solutions

Innovation and productivity are the drivers of economic growth. They thrive where diverse networks of businesses, ideas, people and organizations interact; consider the Ideas Festival as the collision of the minds that instigates change.

I care about the future of Atlantic Canada

Atlantic Canada's aging demographic means young people need to increasingly take on positions of leadership in business and government. The need to collaborate has never been greater to build that critical mass required to attract foreign investment, build economies of scale and repatriate our talent.

The world is changing rapidly everyday

The rapid pace of economic and social change, including the rise of developing countries, is forcing us to more effectively stimulate, communicate and apply new ideas. Importantly, there is no consensus around which ideas should be used.

Ideas Contest

As a part of our Ideas Festival we are launching an ideas contest!

We are asking citizens to envision a prosperous Atlantic Canada 100 years from now and what ideas could be implemented today to support that vision.

In order to retain the best 100 ideas, we are asking YOU to submit an outline of your ideas on Ongozah (Submit Idea! Link), which will then be segmented by sectors (environment, entrepreneurship, transportation, etc.). 

Submit your idea here!

"I thought your conference was first rate and told others as much. Ideas and networking applied to public policy are an irresistible combination."
