We want the world to be a better place and believe in the power of grassroots innovation to make that happen.

During each Good Ideas cycle we work with social innovators to turn their idea into impact. The 6 month Good Ideas programme provides the structure, tools and space the innovators need to look after their well-being, create a network and take their idea through to its full potential. 

These social innovators are taking their ideas into the world in a turbulent time. We had to cancel the Glasgow Social Innovation Showcase but are very excited to be presenting the Edinburgh Class in a brand new innovative, online format. 

Watch this 2 minutes video to hear some of the problems they are aiming to solve:

You can meet the full group at the Social Innovation Showcase | Edinburgh 2020 where the Edinburgh Good Ideas Class will show us how they are making change. 

We hope you’ll join us and show your support to these up and coming social entrepreneurs. Find out how you can help them make change happen and get inspired to make change yourself.

At the end of the Class these social entrepreneurs join the Good Ideas Alumni. Alumni include Celia Hodson founder of Hey Girls, Chris Hellawell founder of Edinburgh Tool Library and Zakia Moulaoui founder of Invisible Cities. 

Join us on 8th June 5 – 7pm online to connect into the Good Ideas network. We need sustainable and successful grassroots social innovation more than ever right now, this is your chance to help make change. 

You can view some of the problems they are aiming to solve in this 2 minute video.
