Are you interested in setting up your own social enterprise or organisation, or launching your own social project? Then this is the right workshop for you!
In this workshop you will choose a social issue and will be guided through exploring your own social idea.
You will be introduced to:
- Key factors for planning your social project or organisation set up.
- 10 practical steps to follow when considering setting up a social project or organisation.
- What you should cover in your business plan.
- How to seek support from a social mentor.
This workshop will prepare for thinking about what your own social venture could be and mapping your own vision and mission statement. You will also draft your own project or organisation objectives and deliver an elevator pitch.
The CSC’s Leaders in Sustainable Development programme of workshops focus on professional and practical skills and are designed to be interactive, with small groups of Scholars and Fellows taking part in each event.
