You’d be forgiven for regarding 2016 as a year of almost unremitting foulness, mean spiritedness and cruelty – or perhaps you weren’t unfortunate enough to get stuck in a lift with me (so many people to apologise to…). Let’s take a moment to focus on 2017 and opportunities to move on from despair and build something better than the mess we’re being asked to settle for.

Over to the good people at Koreo (formerly Vanilla Ventures) who bring you Change100, Charityworks and the Koreo Prize…

koreo_prizeClosing 4 April! The inaugural Koreo Prize is now open for submissions from talented young thinkers across the UK. A national competition showcasing the next generation’s ability to understand and address complex social issues, the Koreo Prize will prove that utilising new thinking and ideas from young people is the key to addressing the defining issues of our time.  The annual Prize offers a range of opportunities for the finalists and winners, from £5,000 cash prize to mentorships and internships. Entries will form an online prospectus for social impact employers looking to hire the next generation of problem solvers. Find out more at http://bit.ly/2hryaKC
