GeoVation Challenge to revive Wales Coast Path

The latest GeoVation Challenge, ‘How can we connect communities and visitors along the Wales Coast Path’, aims to look at how people who live and work along, or visit the 870 mile (1,400 km) coastal path can utilise innovative digital technology to  benefit from this ‘world first’ opportunity. 

Some of the areas which the challenge is looking to tackle include:

  • How can we stimulate local business growth off the back of genuine problems that need solving?
  • How can more be done for local communities to support and use the path?
  • How can we engage and empower children and young people to use, take more interest in, and become proud of the Wales Coast Path?
  • How do we provide accessible information to help people to plan their walks based on their needs, abilities and expectations?
  • How can we provide a joined-up public transport system across the Wales Coast Path?

And 178 ‘raw’ problems are identified. 

If you have ideas to tackle some of the problems, enter the Challenge - you could win a share of the £125 000 funding to get started!

Challenge closes: 12 noon on 2 May 2012.
