Brighten up the winter in an exciting Leicester experiment and learn some 21st century skills. We’re looking for people who are open-minded, enthusiastic and curious.

Amplified Leicester is a city-wide experiment to

– explore diversity and innovation

– build a network across diverse communities

– create, share and develop new ideas

– use social media like Facebook and Twitter as an amplifier

This is an opportunity to work with people you might otherwise never meet and learn how to:

– benefit from Leicester’s huge diversity of people and cultures

– generate lots of new ideas quickly

– think like a futurist and see the bigger picture

– organise and collaborate better

– be persuasive in different social situations

– share and develop creative ideas

– manage the stream of information which bombards us every day

– choose the best people to collaborate with

– make the most of different kinds of resources – social, economic, creative

Participation is free of charge but places are limited. Deadline for applications Friday 11th September 2009.
