Students on the upcoming edventure course will tackle food waste in Salisbury by setting up a financially sustainable Community Fridge.
A community fridge is a simple solution to food waste. It is a public fridge where people and businesses can drop off unwanted food and anyone who needs food can pick it up. The students will have 10 weeks to work out how this can work in Salisbury, engage the local community, find a sustainable business model and launch the fridge.
Through this challenge, students get the opportunity to go through the stages of setting up a social business – from market research to business planning, from generating ideas to project planning, branding and launching the idea. All whilst learning to work in a team and taking on leadership.
Together with our core course content (see here), this challenge will help students get experience and skills for starting-up their own ideas or work in social enterprise.
