Social Innovation Relay

Working with global partner HPJunior Achievement – Young Enterprise has developed the Social Innovation Relay to encourage students aged 15-18 to develop concepts that are socially innovative and could have a signficant positive social impact.

Social innovations are solutions that address social needs. Social needs can be found in any of the following  sectors:

  • Education
  • Health
  • Social Inclusion
  • Livelihood development
  • Sustainibility

A Social Entrepreneur is an individual who recognizes a social problem and uses entrepreneurial principles to create a business and positive social change. 

The interactive web based learning programme is designed to encourage students to think like Social Innovators whilst developing a host of skills that will help them be innovative, entrepreneurial and socially responsible employees and business people in the future.
