Social Storm

Are you passionate about building a better society? Can you use your skills and ideas to find solutions to our society's problems?

We’re looking for people from any background or degree discipline who believe they can make a difference to society, to join our unique 24-hour event on 9-10 November.

Social Storm is an out-of-the-classroom, experiential learning activity, where participants are challenged to apply theory to a real-life social problem.

In a 24-hour hackathon-style event, participants will be working in teams to find a sustainable solution to one of the two challenges set.

By developing your skills and knowledge, Social Storm will enable you to become future change makers.

You will be working in teams comprised of students from other universities to find a sustainable solution to a real life problem, and submitting a video pitch to a team of judges.

The social issues

The sustainable solution created by the teams must tackle an element of one of these social issues, which stem from the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. This year these are Quality education and Life below water.
