Hot on the heels of the first ever Cornwall graduation, the first Australian SSE Fellows have completed their programme in Sydney. Huge congratulations to all of them. You can see their projects + organisations here, and you can read the kind words of the Minister for Social Inclusion + Voluntary Sector, Ursula Stephens here. Top quote from that was:
"Tonight our graduating social entrepreneurs have become fellows of
the global School for Social Entrepreneurs network, which comes with
enormous responsibility – responsibility beyond your individual
business interests. A responsibility to share the knowledge your have
learned with others, to support each other and to maintain a network
with your fellow graduates where you can keep the passionate fire of
I have little doubt that your time at School for Social
Entrepreneurs Australia has equipped you with the ability to make an
even greater contribution to your local community and beyond.
I would like to commend you for the tenacity, entrepreneurial drive
and commitment reflected in all your inspiring projects, and wish you
the best for the future."
As ever, though, images and pictures speak louder than words, so here is a video featuring some of these pioneering social entrepreneurs. Congratulations again from all of us over here to all of you over there!
