Social Innovation for All is a Mid Sussex based social enterprise on a mission to unleash the creative potential of children and young people to address social challenges. We work with young people, schools and partners to design and deliver social innovation programmes that enable young people from ALL backgrounds to build skills, agency and opportunity. We are just over 1 year old and in that time have worked together with partners to skill and empower over 3,500 young people in 21 schools across England, including 4 in Sussex.
We have co-delivered two main pilot programmes – the Young Green Briton Challenge and Eco Pioneers. The Young Green Briton Challenge combines climate education with green changemaking. In its 2022-23 pilot year we reached nearly 3,000 young people across 16 diverse schools across England. The Challenge enables secondary school students aged 11-14 to learn and apply design, innovation, business and other transferable skills. Young people explore local climate and sustainability issues, receiving funding and mentorship to design and implement entrepreneurial solutions or campaigns to address the problems they identify. The Young Green Briton Challenge is now in its second year and is delivered as a partnership between Social Innovation for All, Volunteers for Future and the Green Britain Foundation.
