Luke Ebert, a Master of Design student at Swinburne, has been selected as the Victorian state finalist in The Big Issue’s The Big Idea competition.
The Big Issue, Australia’s longest standing social enterprise, is an independent, not-for-profit organisation which delivers solutions to help the homeless, marginalised, and disadvantaged people to positively change their lives. The Big Idea competition invites students to develop a concept and business plan for a social enterprise that might become the next ‘Big Issue’.
Luke’s ‘Big Idea’ is focused on an Indigenous Food Truck social enterprise. His enterprise seeks to re-affirm Australia’s rich cultural history through food, education and opportunity. Based in Melbourne, the Indigenous Food Truck provides training and employment for young Indigenous Australians who are in protective care.
