Peacemakers is Kenya

Kennnedy was badly affected by the post-election turmoil in his home area in Kenya (in one of the Nairobi slums). He is the leader of a team of acrobats.

Moving my organisation forwards

Chris runs the IT department of a major international
charity’s UK HQ and doesn’t get out as much as he thinks he should to keep up
with new developments. He feels himself to be in an odd role in his
organisation, supporting people whose main job is to support others and who
often regard technology as a nuisance rather than the enabler he sees it as. He

development. He has become interested in the potential of public screens to
stimulate creativity in local youngsters, but he has no background in the
technology. He attended Urban Screens Manchester 07 and his Google search has
revealed the existence of several research projects in related fields, so he is
now quite clued up about other work in the area but hasn’t yet hit upon someone
doing exactly what interests him. He lives in Liverpool, where BBC 24 plays in

Publicising an opportunity


Jane works for a UK funding body which currently has a pot of
money to develop social enterprise responses in the field of preventative health
care with particular emphasis on midlife issues such as obesity, blood pressure
and healthy eating. She is looking to ensure that the call being written to
encourage the submission of bids reaches the sector at large. The call specifies

from within England and Wales. This could take the form of a public campaign, a
