Year Here - a year to test and build solutions to some of society's toughest problems
September 27, 2018
Year Here, a one year London-based post grad course, is something you’re unlikely to have come across before. Discard your entrenched view of what a conventional post grad course looks like. Instead, take a tour with Jack Graham, Year’s Here’s Founder and CEO, as he explains that, with no course fees, the course is a platform for entrepreneurial young professionals to build smart solutions to entrenched social problems. The students, called Fellows, learn from, and design with, people at the front line of inequality – in care homes, hostels and youth services across London.
With the creation of impressive social enterprises like Birdsong, a fashion brand selling clothes handcrafted by women’s groups – from elderly knitters to migrant seamstresses – with a ‘no sweatshops, no photoshop’ ethos, Year Here is one to watch.
