Ideas League is designed to get young people thinking about solving problems in the economy and society of Weymouth and Portland. It asks them to look at the strengths and weaknesses of Weymouth and Portland and then, using that knowledge, come up with ways to make it a better place either by tackling specific challenges or by coming up with their own idea for a business, event, support group, environmental development or product.
