Communities, now more than ever, need support to thrive. The need for ‘social good’ initiatives is greater than ever in the turbulent world we live in, with climate catastrophe on the horizon, widening pay gaps between the rich and poor, and a growing digital divide.

On this short course, you will learn how to develop your ideas for a better world into something tangible such as a social enterprise, community interest company or co-operative. You will learn about how to market the initiative, get funding, reach your audience and make an impact on your communities, and will have the opportunity to develop plans for your own social enterprise.

This course is offered by the Centre for Global Programmes, in cooperation with teaching staff of the University.
