The Start Something Good Challenge
16th December, 2021 - 25th March, 2022
The Start Something Good Challenge – NOW OPEN!
Big Ideas Wales is excited to launch the Start Something Good Social Enterprise Challenge 2021 for young people aged 11-18 living in Wales.
Everything the young people need can be found at: www.bigideas.wales/startsomethinggood
The Challenge focus is on Social Enterprise – doing something good.
We want to hear from young people if they can think of a SOLUTION to something that would have a POSITIVE impact on people around them / in their community.
The idea can be big or small – we just want to see that they have really felt motivated and enjoyed taking part.
On the webpage the About the Challenge link/pdf will help you get started and the Inspiration and Resources link/pdf will give you lots of great resources (video clips, downloads, activities) to inspire, and help the young people understand and plan.
We think we have provided all they should need – including a Template (draft application form) word doc to practice completing it before entering online.
We are inviting the young people to capture their idea in either a short video clip or PowerPoint slides.
The Challenge can be worked on independently or in groups at home, school, college or in any outside of education setting.
We hope the Challenge will help develop enterprising, creative, ethical and informed citizens. We know they have strong opinions about the world around them and there’s a growing movement across Wales who want to do something good – so please encourage participation!
It will also provide opportunities for them to showcase their entrepreneurial talent and their understanding of the impact of a social enterprise.
