go further and deeper into the mechanisms of social innovation

 

CHALLENGE WHAT YOU know about the world around you - through hands-on workshops, community trails, and meetings with local changemakers, learn to spot and build perspective on the issues below that surface, and build up your own kit of knowledge, frameworks, inspiration and powerful tools that will enable you to design, implement, and evaluate innovative solutions to social challenges!

 

COURSE HIGHLIGHTS

create an impact in your community.

  • Pick up critical tools that'll empower you to think laterally, and look beyond the surface and identify obscured issues and relate to hidden communities in both the host country and your home country
  • Through fun and engaging workshops, gain transferable skills, such as Design Thinking, the Theory of Change, Social Business Model Canvas, and more - and put them into practice via a challenge to present your own project ideas for your home communities
  • Be inspired by examples of social innovation that are making an impact across different spheres of society here in Singapore, and discuss the opportunities and challenges within the sector with Singaporean social entrepreneurs
  • Get to know a side of Singapore that few - even locals - know about, through trails and exchanges with your local peers; gain valuable perspectives to the garden city and explore the role of narratives in nation-building and national development

" I used to make my thoughts too simple but now I've learned to define things better and I would love to learn more about the social issues."
