Our events bring together the pioneers of social enterprise, global development, sustainability and youth leadership with the next generation of leaders, consumers and decision-makers.
Our Hubs organise inspiring events, including the Bristol Careers Beyond Profit Fair and the Cambridge Climate and Sustainability Forum. You can find out more about upcoming events on our Hub websites.
Case Study: Madlaina Michelotti, Environment and Sustainability Coordinator, Southampton Hub
“I initially became involved with Southampton Hub’s Sustainability Festival committee in my first year. I really enjoyed being able to work towards a common goal with like-minded people who valued my input and opinions. After pulling off a successful event, and eager to have an even greater impact in our community, I realised there were things I wanted to change, improve and expand on.
In 2014, I became the Environment and Sustainability Coordinator and shaped the Sustainability Festival according to my vision. I continued this role for a second year, as I wanted to see the Sustainability programme at Southampton grow. The confidence and skills I developed led me to organise workshops and launch new projects like Bio-Cycle, which tackles food waste in the local area.”
Emerge brings together over 500 university students, young professionals, activists, entrepreneurs and global change-agents leading social ventures. Over the two-day gathering, participants learn from sector leaders about innovations addressing some of the world’s most urgent challenges.
Emerge centres on learning and action. It is a space to gain skills and resources to launch a new venture, design career pathways and provoke ideas for creating a more sustainable world.
We co-designed and co-organised the event with the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship at Oxford University’s Saïd Business School until 2016. Now we support the Skoll Centre team to engage students.
