Take part in free development sessions ahead of the Shifting London Festival from SSE

Each 1.5 hour long online workshop is a stand-alone session where you can explore your ideas for sparking change and creating opportunities for growth within your communities. These will feed into the workshops on offer at the full September festival.

Available sessions

Bringing your ideas to life – Tuesday 5 September

What it’s about? What is your idea? How do you connect your idea to the needs of your audience? What is the problem you are trying to solve? This session will help you explore these questions and help you go about answering them.

Becoming a social leader. Using your skills for good – Wednesday 6 September

What it’s about? What are the qualities of an entrepreneur? What drives you? What are your passions? We can’t be great at everything, come and join the discussion about how to use your skills to benefit a wider audience and what you can improve on.

Creating businesses for a greener future – Tuesday 12 September

What it’s about? How can you integrate sustainability into the heart of your idea? What are the environmental challenges within London you can help solve? Your business idea could have a climate focus and there are many operational elements that you can consider.

Funding your idea – Thursday 14 September 

What it’s about? Building confidence around understanding your potential costs and looking at the different streams of income that could benefit your cause.


There will also be associated webinars and training sessions delivered before the event, and follow up programmes after it. Please check out the Shifting London website for more information.
