Deadline: 1 October 2017

The Melting Pot is calling all budding entrepreneurs, social innovators and those with good ideas to change the world to apply online for their FREE 'Good Ideas Academy'. 

Since 2011 the Academy has inspired and supported 67 people to turn their great ideas into new social enterprises, charities and campaigns. These include creative organisations such as music innovators Tinderbox and Vox Liminis; environmental enterprises such as Green Aspirations and RemadeEdinburgh; and social campaign initiatives such as Fathers Network Scotland and the Reward Foundation.

Creating a non-profit organisation can be a daunting prospect, so The Melting Pot is there to help people test out their ideas, turn them into action and make a real, long-term difference to society.

The Good Ideas Academy aims to attract a diverse range of grassroots leaders and this year they are particularly keen to hear from people whose idea:

  • Has been inspired by personal experience of a particular problem or issue. Or
  • Involves using a creative approach to improving the lives of people or the environment, through art, music, design, dance for example.
