Leicester Matters brings together the local community and the University of Leicester. Jointly identifying pressing problems of the day, academics will work with local charities, community members and business to identify ideas for future cooperation. University of Leicester is committed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and we believe that our obligations start at home, right here, in Leicester where we know the community faces pressing concerns such as bad air quality, plastic pollution and lack of green spaces, to name but a few.

Leicester Matters engagement day features showcases of existing cooperation and the input of Leicester citizens regarding their most pressing concerns. Participants will form teams to address specific challenges and propose action plans. The best plan will be awarded SEED funding to move ahead. There will also be a showcase of short films, produced by students, that identifies local social challenges within Leicester to find some eye-opening results.

As part of Exit Week at the University of Leicester, this event is brought to you by the Public Engagement team, the Social Impact team, Leicester Innovation Hub and the School of Business.
