CHALLENGE WHAT YOU know about the world around you. Through hands-on workshops, community trails, and meeting local change-makers, build a multifaceted perspective on the issues below the surface, identify assets, and assemble your own toolkit of knowledge, frameworks to design, implement, and evaluate innovative solutions to social challenges!

 

COURSE HIGHLIGHTS

create an impact in your community.

  • 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, discuss the opportunities and challenges within the sector with Singaporean social entrepreneurs

  • Get to know a side of Singapore that few locals even 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

testimonials

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.
I’ve always [been] interested in social science and this, somehow, widened my view of this subject and my view of Singapore.
