Millennials & Social Innovation
An exploratory research on tertiary-level students’ involvement in the social sector, with a focus on the social innovation scene, was conducted by students from the Diploma in Business & Social Enterprise (Previously known as Diploma in Social Enterprise Management) to understand the mindset of the millennial group. This project hopes to meet the following objectives:
- Design and execute a participatory research activity to better understand what tertiary students seek in their service learning activities and what they would like to do differently.
- Apply observations from these activities to help inform charities and service learning programme coordinators on ways to improve youth social involvement.
Together, we reached out to about 200 students to find out the involvement that appeals to them most and their wish-list in being able to carry out such a project.
