ARE YOU BUILDING RADICAL NEW SOLUTIONS BRED OUT OF HOPE AND POSSIBILITY?
Starting in 2020, each year the UK Fellows Programme brings together 20 extraordinary individuals who are tackling our most pressing social issues – and equips them with the knowledge, skills and community to accelerate and sustain their impact. Fellows come from all walks of life and are embedded within a broad range of disciplines; they are championing neglected causes, catalysing social entrepreneurship, pioneering inclusive business, reimagining public policy and building bold movements. Over the course of a year Fellows immerse themselves in a series of week-long residentials and virtual seminars, designed to increase their capacity to work across lines of difference, create collective action and build solutions for interconnected challenges. Fellows join Acumen’s global community of social innovators – connected to lifelong learning, collaboration and accompaniment as they drive change.
Update: To enable those who need to double-down on their work, community and family, we are extending the Stage 1 deadline for the Fellowship until the end of May. In the meantime, we will be offering a range of online conversations, workshops and programmes over the coming months designed to connect a community of UK social innovators and the leadership needed in times of change. Please visit our UK Events page and sign up here to keep updated.
