Tshepang Programme for Orphaned and Vulnerable Children, Johannesburg
Common Good First will create a digital network to identify, showcase and connect social innovation projects in South Africa to each other and to universities around the world for research, student engagement and learning and teaching.
As well as developing a mobile-first platform, it will create digital storytelling modules which will be shared with community groups in specifically-designed labs in South Africa, as well as online.
Common Good First has been funded by the EU’s Erasmus+ programme, with additional investment from the Scottish Government.
The Consortium comprises universities from Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Scotland, Spain and South Africa, as well as the global network, the Social Innovation Exchange.
