The King’s Civic Challenge empowers students, staff and local communities to make a lasting difference, by teaming up to co-create imaginative solutions to local challenges. It is: An incubator - Development/training programme to generate and refine ideas with social impact. A competition - Pitch for one of four awards of £5k funding and support to deliver projects. But every team and project is important. A community - 15-20 charities and around 100 like-minded King’s students, staff and alumni. A journey - Teams interrogate a local issue brought by the charity and co-design a project. All team members participate fully and equally on a voyage of shared discovery. King’s wants to support all projects, not just those that win funding. NB The 2021/22 Challenge will be a mixture of in-person and online activity Why should your charity take part?
