Linkcity Partners with Solutions for the Planet for a Second Year RunningDecember 13th 2021
Linkcity are delighted to have partnered with Solutions for the Planet (S4TP) for a second year running!
S4TP is a social enterprise passionate about sustainability and improving young people’s life chances. Like Linkcity, S4TP believes young people are key to helping us make the world a better place for everyone and so they reinvest profits back into the business to benefit more young people and local communities.
Their well-renowned Big Ideas Programme, which we are looking forward to getting involved with for another year, is a STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) and enterprise programme with a focus on sustainability issues that matter to our young people. Delivered in secondary schools across the UK and using employee volunteers from their Business Partner Network as mentors, the Big Ideas Programme harnesses creativity, encourages team work, develops STEM and wider employability skills, and gives young people a voice in the dialogue around sustainability, linking their ideas to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Since 2013, the Big Ideas Programme has involved over 23,000 young people from more than 80 schools, with 500+ mentors volunteering over 5,000 hours of their time to support the young people in developing their confidence, ideas, skills and knowledge around STEM, sustainability and entrepreneurship.
We are thrilled that this year we have a new set of mentors joining the programme to share their expertise with the pupils they will be mentoring from Stratford School Academy. Meet Romain, Elliot, Alex and George to hear what they thought about last week’s Big Ideas 2021 launch event!
