Hack of Change Event

  • Thurs 15th & Fri 16th April 10-4pm - Hack of Change – Solving Social Issues & Developing your Employability and Enterprise Skills

    Would you like to give something back, and do you have a passion for making a difference – locally or globally? And develop your enterprise and employability skills at the same time, by working virtually in teams?

    The Hack of Change is a two day virtual event, on 15th-16th April, where students from all of the Universities in Wales will come together to develop ideas to support social issues. Participants will learn the basics of setting up a social enterprise, including idea generation, market-testing and how to create impact for local communities.

     The areas of social issues to be addressed are:

    • Health and wellbeing
    • Food poverty
    • Climate change
    • Social isolation and loneliness
    • Unemployment
    • Helping older people

    You can either join as a pre-existing group or as an individual.
