Here is some information about a very special opportunity for students with an international outlook interested in social enterprise:
“School for Changemakers SfCM is built on the remarkable success of the conference of the same name that was held last year. Held on the beautiful campus of Liverpool Hope University, the programme will attract people who are aged 18 years or older from a range of backgrounds in order to examine change as a personal, professional and spiritual phenomenon.
By attending, partcipants will benefit from an interplay of keynote speeches and workshops delivered by significant experts, times for reflection and quiet contemplation and a programme of entertainment and games in the evenings. Among the speakers coming will be Tommy Hutchinshon, the founder of iGenius; Dr Omnia Marzouk a Consultant Paediatrician of Egyptian descent and professionals from the worlds of education, communication, enterprise, politics, social change and business.
Above all, the SfCM will give participants an introduction and entry to the work of Initiatives of Change www.iofc.net, an international non-governmental organisation with special consultative status at the United Nations which holds annual global conferences in Caux, Switzerland and attracts Heads of State as well as leaders from the public, private and voluntary sectors from around the world
The SfCM Conference is a must for people of university age and beyond who are thinking about their careers, wish to network with some movers and shakers within society and people of their own age and are interested in learning more about how to optimally handle a world that is in constant change.
Because of generous grants, we are offering the first few people who apply, bursaries of £250 each for places on this years SfCM which will be held between 24 and 27 June. Without a bursary, the full price of a place on the programme, including accommodation in an en-suite bedroom, tuition and meals would be in excess of £300. We are therefore offering the first few people to apply, entry to the SfCM for a nominal fee of £50 only. To apply online and learn more about the SfCM, please visit www.schoolforchangemakers.org.”
