The Sunshine Coast is facing a number of challenges and opportunities. These range from securing the largest health infrastructure project in the Southern Hemisphere (Sunshine Coast University Hospital) to the consequences of demographic change on economic growth.
What this means for the Sunshine Coast will be the focus of this years’ Sunshine Coast Futures Conference on Friday 11th November, 2011.

This conference is sponsored by the University of the Sunshine Coast, in partnership with the Sunshine Coast Council, and will be held in the Auditorium at the Innovation Centre, University of the Sunshine.

This year the theme is The Three Ps: Population, Participation and Productivity. This Conference follows on from the keynote address at last year’s What Works Conference, where Chris Richardson from Access Economics spoke about the Productivity Equation (the Three Ps) and its application to regions and, specifically, the Sunshine Coast.

This year, Westpac’s Chief Economist, Bill Evans, is our keynote speaker. To put the Three Ps into context and to stimulate discussions and outcomes, we have Professor Mike Hefferan, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Engagement) at USC, and David Rumbens, Director, Access Economics.

Backed by the most recent research, our key speakers will provide an in-depth understanding of the Three P issues facing the Sunshine Coast. This information will then shape the small group discussion in the afternoon. Outcomes from this session will be widely distributed and will support the development of practical strategies.

This is a MUST event for those who want to continue to live and work on the Sunshine Coast.
