Igniting Your Passion
In this workshop, participants will learn about purpose-led business with the main focus directed towards identifying what challenges exist for those living in their area. These challenges could be social, economic, accessibility-related, availability related or evenabout the environment. We will look at what groups and people face the challenges andwhat is currently being done to address these problems. Participants will map out current businesses, charities, and support within their community that address their community needs. This will help them to discover, identifyand highlight gaps in services or missing support. Together the groups will further explore what new activities may help to address these gaps and needs while identifying income generation.
