About the event

Presentation from Vuala


Vuala is company working to revolutionize the food waste collection industry with innovation.

Our mission is to reduce 100 million tonnes CO2 in 10 years.

We have been recently accepted into the Accelerate Cambridge program and a start up program at Somerset House in London. Credit and gratitude must be given to the Homerton Seed Fund and Changemaker programme for the support. We would like to say that we are still aiming to set up our first UK pilot system at Homerton College. This would be an important milestone within our journey to deploy the innovation commercially. With Cambridge being the place where I’ve spent most of my time developing the innovation with my team, it would be an absolute dream come true to set up our first UK pilot system within the University and help Homerton accelerate its sustainability journey. We are currently researching on sustainability related programme within the University and are aiming to establish a collaboration with the University’s “Living Lab” programme and apply for the University’s Carbon Reduction Fund. We wish our innovation can be utilised at Homerton, and possibly be a case study on how a Homerton Seed Fund/Changemaker venture can make a positive environmental impact on saving 100 million tonnes CO2 in 10 years.


Presentation from UniArk

UniArk -

UniArk is a passionate group of young people striving to bring a positive change to oppressed communities worldwide by supporting their young people, particularly women, to access and navigate higher education opportunities at leading global universities. A core belief of UniArk is that helping (even if only a few) such promising students leave their oppressive environments and have the opportunity to develop themselves to their full potential is the best thing we can do to increase the probability of positive change in these countries. This is our investment in securing a sustainable future for the generations to come. Unlocking the future and investing in the potential of bright students to change the world starts at UniArk.


Presentation from The Fáilte Centre

The Fáilte Centre -

At The Fáilte Centre, we offer individualised learning opportunities as well as psychosocial & mental health support (MHPSS) services at our welcoming centre in Athens, Greece. The individuals accessing our centre - many of whom are refugees and asylum seekers – come from a wide range of backgrounds, and experience many complex challenges, including many instances of trauma. Over the funding period, we will begin to thoughtfully incorporate technology into our programmes to maximise and monitor impact. Our specific focus will be on using technology and data collection to inform and enhance our trauma-informed Child Safe Space approach. Guided by research, we will be testing various ways of supporting children with psychological first aid and emotional regulation. We will then be using the data to guide us towards creating software which caregivers could use to support children with trauma processing, healthy coping mechanisms and emotional regulation.


Refreshment break


Presentation from Logic Link

Logic Link

LogicLink is an education recruitment platform that streamlines and democratizes the university recruiting process. We use extensive credentialing, quantitative and qualitative data to efficiently dovetail the best suited students to respective entry-level jobs and internships. One of Logic Link’s fundamental missions is to expand access for both the student and the employer markets. While the platform democratizes the internship and entry-level process by allowing students from all diverse backgrounds to be matched with their best suited jobs free of cost, it also opens employers to every corner of every university on our platform, matching them with thoroughly qualified candidates from a wider applicant pool.


Presentation from the Biophilic Education Institute

The Biophilic Education Institute

We are introducing Biophilic Education, a passion love of live and all that is alive. We value the whole human ecosystem as an integral part of the local and global ecosystems. Through transdisciplinary, contextual, project-based learning, and portfolio based formative assessment, we are transforming the way we teach and assess the secondary school curriculum. We value and nurture peoples unique talents and interests because we need a rich diversity of skills and knowledge to build a flourishing society. We are building a more equitable, ethical and sustainable model for the schools of the future, community spaces for life-long learning, where collaboration is valued over competition.
