What is Live Ideas?

Live Ideas turns your ideas into collaborative projects. Live Ideas provides real world opportunities for Southern Cross University students and staff to work with community partners for mutual benefit.


Live Ideas, an initiative of Southern Cross University, is just one way that we enrich communities through the excellence of our graduates and the quality of our teaching and research.

Want to partner with Southern Cross University? Submit your project idea to our Live Ideas team. We will assess and promote approved projects for interested staff and students to come on board. Have a question? Contact us and sign up for our newsletter.

Looking for a community project that is ready to go? Search through projects and when you find a live idea that suits, join the project and we will get you started. There are lots of different projects, from a small volunteer project to something more in-depth for independent study units or research. Have a question? Contact us and we are happy to assist.
