    thinkpublic have been working with The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation to develop a new approach to supporting social innovation projects. The first stage of this process is a call for ideas that is currently open for UK projects at and for Portuguese projects at

    We are looking for innovative and dynamic intergenerational projects that deal with three key issues: Environment, Migration and Intercultural issues, and Isolation and Loneliness. If you have a great idea then your organisation could be awarded £30,000 of funding to make it happen.

    If you are successful in your funding application, thinkpublic will provide you with a package of design support, to help ensure your project has the biggest impact and amount of user involvement possible.

    Stage 1 of the call is open until 12 noon on Friday 26th March, ideas will then be shortlisted and invited to complete a more detailed application. If you would like to find out more about this fund, watch this video with Andrew Barnett, Director of Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (UK Branch).
