Win prizes: Take the community challenge


Join forces with your local community – create a better future for people and the planet


Community is both local and global. It’s about connections, celebrating diversity and working together for the good of all.

The United Nations has 17 Global Goals to improve the sustainability of communities by the year 2030. These include gender equality, health and wellbeing, sustainable consumption and production and climate action: www.globalgoals.org

What’s the challenge?

As an individual or as a team – volunteer and make a local difference  for the global goals.

All you need to do is:

  1. Team up with a community group – choose one of our ready-made partnership projects, or create your own!
  2. Capture your adventure – share what you achieved for the global goals – e.g. with photos, film or blogs
  3. Sign up to our community festival – celebrate your achievements and pitch to the judges to win prizes

How will we be judged?

The judges will be looking at:

  • How well you worked with the community
  • What you achieved together for the Global Goals, benefiting people, profit and the planet
  • How you captured and shared your experience to inspire others

What could we win?

We have 2 categories of prizes: 1 for individual entries, and 1 for team entries

Team:
1st Prize – £350
2nd Prize – £150  
Individual:
1st Prize – £150
2nd Prize – £50  

How do we enter?

You can complete your challenge any time in semester 1 or 2 up until the end of March 2020 but you will need to let us know you want to take part by the end of January 2020, so here are the steps:
