The Community Enterprise Association Ireland has issued its final call out for innovative and creative thinkers who want to tackle social or environmental challenges in local communities in Dublin.

The deadline to get involved as a participant, sponsor or a volunteer in the upcoming ‘Champion Changemakers ’Weekends is September 21. 

The ambition of the project is to find solutions that will directly impact the lives of people in local communities around Ireland and promote the role of social enterprise in local communities. Individuals will not need to have any experience of business or social enterprise, just a passion to make a real difference in their own communities and beyond. 

During the weekend, ideas created and solutions identified will be concept-tested, validated and developed for suitability and ideally commercial sustainability – possibly even leading to the setting up of non-profit business which will create local jobs in the future.

Ideas will be judged under one of the following three categories

  1. Environment and Climate Action
  2. Economic Inequality
  3. Human Wellbeing.

Finalists will be identified from each region and those shortlisted will participate in the national event on October 20. The overall winning individual or group will receive a prize bursary with an estimated value of €10,000
