I didn’t know that there were so many other social issues across the world. To be honest I hadn’t thought of them in such great detail, I think by having to do changemakers and to learn every week from different people is a very great way of learning of what’s happening around the world.

Since 2010, the University of Northampton has taken significant steps to reach its strategic objective to become the Number 1 University in the UK for social enterprise and entrepreneurship. Attainment of this objective became most high profile in February 2013 when the University was designated by Ashoka U as the first ‘Changemaker Campus’ in the UK. Ashoka U is the Universities branch of Ashoka, a global foundation that recognises and supports social entrepreneurs, and the designation propelled the University into an exclusive, 30+-strong global consortium of University leaders in social entrepreneurship education.
