Students as Change Agents is an exciting five-day challenge that brings together students from different disciplines and all levels to tackle real-world problems set by external organisations from the non-profit, public, and private sectors. 


As a Change Agent, you will work with students from other subjects to tackle complex challenges and wrestle with some of the critical issues of today. You will be able to apply your university learning to make a sustainable difference; to society, the environment, or the economy.


The challenges and external partners for February 2020 are:


1) How can the construction industry use digital technology to contribute to the circular economy?

(Partner, Robertson Group)


2) How can Scotland change to reduce youth homelessness?

(Partner, Clan Childlaw and Shelter Scotland)


3) How can society fairly support women in the UK to develop long-term financial resilience and capability?

(Partner, Scottish Widows)
