Question:
In the light of learning from this module, what future social impact would you like to make?

To answer this question you will need to:

1 Consider what this module has been about–what social, historical, political, environmental, ethical issues have we covered?

2 Examine what constitutes a social impact (references to theory, literature, examples.)

3 Discuss the current context for your social impact e.g. globalisation, current social issues, private, public,& social economies. Can individuals make a difference? Should people try to make a difference? Who is responsible for change? Is change needed or even possible?

4 Discuss how your own values and perspectives might influence your contribution in this field of social entrepreneurship.

5 Explain what you feel strongly about –what is your vision? Justify your proposed social impact and the impact it could have – even if it is not a specific proposal but an area in which you feel you can make a contribution.

6 Identify the challenges you might you face. What experience could you call on now/in the future to ensure you can deliver on your vision?

General guidance:
You must include perspectives and theories from relevant literature, appropriate examples, and your own independent research to support and validate the point of view you are presenting.
