The SFU Student Social Innovation Fund, a collaboration between RADIUS and Embark, provides project funding of up to $1000. Applications are now closed but will open again for the 2016-2017 school year! Stay posted for our next fund availability announcement in the fall.
The Social Innovation Seed Fund Committee awarded funding to two exciting new student initiatives at the end of the 2015-2016 cycle, closing out our seed funding allocation for this school year on a high note. We are pleased to showcase these forthcoming projects – CityHive and Socks for Change!
The project teams write:
CityHive is an emerging youth-led, Vancouver-based organization empowering youth to influence, shape, and co-create their cities. Our three pillars are advocacy, education, and empowerment. We will advocate for the inclusion of youth in planning decisions in cities, organizations and institutions. We will educate and empower youth in getting involved in civic issues. We envision a Vancouver where youth are fully engaged in the planning, design and creation of their cities. CityHive will be the go-to-convener for youth on urban issues in the city.
Tesicca and Veronika are the dynamic duo behind CityHive. Read More
