Chris Burnett

Summer 2015



Chris joins us from Aberdeen, Scotland for the summer as an intern under the British Council's pilot program 'Students for Social Impact'. He is a current undergraduate student at the Robert Gordon University, studying Applied Social Sciences. Students for Social Impact placements provide the opportunity for talented students to contribute to life-changing social enterprises in Canada or the UK, gain valuable overseas experience, and connect with other young leaders of the future.


Over the summer as a key PDC team member, he will be working on various projects including; mapping the social entrepreneurial ecosystem of Atlantic Canada and helping to establish a Social Innovation Lab at the PDC. More generally, Chris will be discovering the various opportunities available that involve youth and social entrepreneurship in Canada, to then to apply this to a Scottish context.
