In order to overcome the challenges and make best use of the emerging opportunities in regional Australia, it is important that the adaptive potential of the region is identified, tapped and deployed with purpose. The goal of creating a prosperous and sustainable future for regional Australia requires sustained leadership, creativity, and motivation and determination, combined within a concerted effort to identify, develop and implement ideas to support and benefit regional communities. Creating and implementing a strategy and framework to support and stimulate innovation is necessary to achieve that goal. This paper re-introduces the concept of an Intentional Innovation Community and focuses on a current strategic community based development promoting innovation in the Northern Inland Region of NSW Australia.
