Posted onI’m passionate about people’s relationships with each other and with the planet. As many have said before me, we only have one earth and we need to look after it. So, how do we go about effecting the biggest change we can? I believe finding common ground, especially on issues that affect all of us, is the key to building partnerships that can have a big impact. And no ground could be more common than the ground we stand on! That’s one of the reasons why our Big Ideas Programme, focuses on sustainability. It provides a space for young …and older people from businesses and schools, corporates and communities to creatively collide, share knowledge and skills, and to think big. The benefits of this are gifts that keeps on giving.
Posted onBefore coming to work for Solutions for the Planet I worked for one of our previous Business Partners and mentored on the Big Ideas Programme for four years. I found the mentoring experience unbelievably rewarding, personally, as a professional and as part of my career. Here I’ll talk you through some of the benefits of mentoring that I experienced.
Posted onWhat an event! In our new normal of virtual events, our National Final on Wednesday 18 November, has to stand out as of one of the best! We welcomed twelve amazing Big Ideas teams, parents, teachers, mentors, special guests, our exceptional judges, inspiring keynote speakers, and a panel of sustainability experts. It was a truly awesome finale for the Big Ideas Competition 2020.
