Event description
Meet the next generation of social entrepreneurs as three primary schools compete to develop the best ideas for changing the world around us

About this Event

Welcome to our fourth and most adventurous Downend SOUP ever - the first Junior SOUP (possibly) in the world.

Inspiring the next generation of social entrepreneurs three teams from primary schools across Downend & Bromley Heath will use the 2018 / 2019 school year to research, build and implement a social enterprise project with your help.

Junior SOUP will run a little differently to our regular events. Our legendary quality soup, sourdough and yummy cakes plus top musical entertainment remain throughout. Junior SOUP will run over the course of two events.

At our event 2nd October 2018 you'll get the chance to meet the three teams of social entrepreneurs. Each team will present their idea, what inspires them and how they plan their year ahead. There'll be time for questions as well as a round table session which will allow our guests to learn more about the projects and lend some grown-up experience and suggestions.

The vote will take place as usual but at the end of the evening each team will be granted an equal amount of the door money plus any other sponsorship funds we can raise as seedcorn initial funding towards their project.

The groups will return to Downend SOUP in March 2018 to explain how their ideas have developed and the results that have been achieved. After another audience vote - the winning team will be awarded the very first Downend Junior SOUP cup to take back to their school.

This is the first time we think that the SOUP concept has been extended to inspire the generation that comes behind us and we're so proud that our tiny community in Downend can once again be the innovators in this field.

So do please come along and show the youngest members of the community that we admire, support and encourage their efforts to make our corner of the world an even better place.
