The Ideas Collective is a new programme being run by Suas, an organisation that aims to give all young people the opportunity to receive a good education. The Ideas Collective is essentially an incubator programme for social and environmental ideas and entrepreneurs who are just starting out. It is aimed at, though not exclusive to, 18 – 30 year olds.
From Claire Faithorn, who runs the Ideas Collective at Suas:
“The Ideas Collective is a part-time programme run by Suas for motivated individuals and groups with an idea for a social or environmental action project. Over the course of 100 days from June-August you will be supported in bringing your idea for change to life. We are looking for applicants who wish to learn about how change happens and who have the desire to create change. If you have ideas for projects, we want to support you to develop and implement these through The Ideas Collective in summer 2016.”
The closing date for applications is Tuesday 24th May. Information about the programme is available online at http://www.stand.ie/ideas/. Also see the document below for information regarding what is involved in the programme, as well as the different dates and what’s on:
