We are delighted to announce that our CEO, Jen Baughan, on behalf of Solutions for the Planet, is a Finalist in the Pivot Entrepreneur of the Year category at the Great British Entrepreur Awards 2020 for the work that we have done pivotting the #BigIdeasCompetition2020 to the #VirtualBigIdeasCompetition2020!!
Over the past two months we have, partly, answered the question: How do you run a competition for schools and businesses when all of the schools’ doors are closed to their students and many businesses have furloughed staff and have limited capacity?
The Answer: The Virtual Big Ideas Competition.
BSA CREST Awards and Solutions for the Planet
Since 2015, over 1250 young people have been awarded a CREST Bronze Award for making it to a regional final in the Big Ideas Competition, and we can now add a further 145 who have just participated in our recent Virtual events!
Over the last two years, over 5500 young people on the Big Ideas programme also received or were eligible for their CREST Discovery Award! That’s a lot of potential changemakers out there!
