Flinders University is again participating in ‘The Big Idea’, a social enterprise concept and planning competition organised by The Big Issue. Please promote it to your students.
The Big Idea is an inter-university social enterprise concept and planning competition for undergraduate students, open to students from across the university. Not only are there great prizes to be won, but participation provides a unique learning experience.
The competition will be conducted across semester 2, with the finals to be held in Melbourne. It requires students, working in teams, to develop an idea for a social enterprise, which si a business which operates on a not-for-profit basis and whose primary aim is to in some way assist a disadvantaged group in the community.
There are two options for Flinders students to compete, namely on an extra-curriculum basis or in a manner which enables them to earn credit towards their degree (depending upon the degree requirements).
