The Project Gen Z team have gathered together some of the country’s top social entrepreneurs to design a new 1 day program to inspire and educate the next generation to change the world.
Changemaker gives students the opportunity
to learn about social enterprise and explore how business can make a difference. The day starts with an inspirational keynote from one of Australia’s top social entrepreneurs. Students will learn how the entrepreneur built a business to solve a global or community problem, taking risks to create positive changes in society.
Once students understand more about social entrepreneurship, they will go head to head in the
‘Changemakers Challenge’, an educational and exciting competition where students will work in
teams to identify a social problem and invent a way to address the problem using business.
Students hear from a real social entrepreneur, how they navigated life after school, overcame obstacles and found their passion to change the world.
Students learn how business can be used as a force for good.
Students split into teams to take part in ‘The Changemaker Challenge’ where they go head to head to solve a real world problem and launch their own mini social enterprise. The teams build a marketing campaign, film and edit a 30 sec TV commercial and then battle it out in a live ‘pitch off’ competition in front of the Project Gen Z judges.
