Do you think you could put forward a few ideas to make Ireland better?

A new scheme has been launched to find people who feel they have suggestions for improving living standards in the country.

Social Entrepreneurs Ireland is behind the initiative and says more than €500,000 is being made available for the best 50 ideas.

CEO Darren Ryan says the organisation is open to a wide range of suggestions.

“We’re not looking for the perfect idea here, we’re looking for people who have new ideas and want to test them out to see if they have could have a really powerful impact in their communities,” he explains.

Previous winners include the Irish Men’s Sheds Association, FoodCloud and AsIAm and Darren says Social Entrepreneurs Ireland is searching for ideas that could change many people’s lives across the country.
