  • Do you have an idea you want to grow that has positive social impact?
  • Do you need support to explore your idea and examine if it has the potential to be sustainable and make a genuine difference to people’s lives?

The Good Ideas Camp is a free, intensive 4 day facilitated ‘Ideation’ process (held over 2 weekends), where you will join 24 others to:

  • Get creative and explore your idea in a safe, fun and inspiring space
  • Hear stories from real life change makers
  • Meet other inspirational people and organisations to help build your confidence and network
  • Examine if your idea has the potential to be sustainable and make a genuine difference to people’s lives
  • Understand how to get started with making your idea happen
  • Think about what inspired your idea and where your motivation comes from

The four workshops will be run on 4th, 5th, 18th & 19th November 2017 from 9-5pm at The Melting Pot in central Edinburgh.

An additional, optional session gives you the chance to pitch your idea on the afternoon of Monday 4th Dec to a panel of judges, with 10 people or organisations selected to continue on to the Good Ideas Class of 2018 – a 6 months development programme.

In the true spirit of social innovation, the Good Ideas Academy attracts a wonderfully diverse range of people and projects. All are united in a vision and passion to find a better way to help society fulfil its potential. Participants range from those with a ‘good clear idea’ to those with emerging non-profit organisations.

This year we are particularly interested in ideas that: use a creative approach to improving people’s lives; have been inspired by personal experience of a particular problem or issue. But whatever your idea, if positive social impact is at its heart then we’d like to hear from you.

We are now accepting applications for the 2017 Good Ideas Camp – so if you’re ready to explore your good idea just complete the form below.

  • Applications close at midnight of Sunday 1 October 2017.
  • Applicants will be notified by close of business on Friday 6 October if they have a place.
