Doing Social is partnering with Leeds Beckett University to co-create the right opportunities for civil society and public agencies to be involved meaningfully in the design and delivery of this new course so that it is fit for purpose and leads to positive outcomes for students, communities, and society. The degree will be available at the Carnegie School of Education from September 2018.

The event will take place on Thursday 27 April, 14.00-17.00 in Headingley, Leeds. We are expecting colleagues from civil society/third sector, communities, innovators, think tanks, public agencies, and schools to join us to learn about how this programme can benefit communities and wider society. You will also hear about the opportunities to participate in the development and delivery of the course.

As part of the launch, there will be a panel-led discussion on the importance of meaningful co-creation and community-led innovation for building an inclusive economy and tackling challenges in the areas of education, mental health, housing, children, and young people. We have three great panel speakers: Rob Greenland (Co-founder, Leeds Community Homes), Neil McInroy (CEO, Centre for Local Economic Strategies - CLES), and Naomi Mwasambili (Director, Chanua Health).
