Every idea needs a champion
NECTAR is not about other people doing it for you. It is about you taking a leadership role to effect change. The NECTAR team will help you to navigate the path from your idea to a proposal to be put to the ANU Executive, but it is up to you to determine what your proposal is about, why it is important, and what ANU can do to make it happen.
