    The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

    A 2 to 4-day program that views the UN SDGs as Problems to be Solved

    This program educates and empowers the next generation to contribute meaningfully to solving sustainable development problems in their communities and beyond. The United Nations' 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has been the driving force behind this learning initiative.

    The program's curriculum has been carefully developed to align with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), incorporating problem-solving activities, real-life case studies, and collaborations with local organizations. Part of our work has been to convert the SDG Targets into Problem Statements that enable students to focus on problem-solving.

    The core of this experiential learning program is to provide students with hands-on experience in addressing sustainable development challenges. By engaging in community-based projects and collaborations with local organizations, students understand sustainability issues deeply and develop the necessary skills to make a tangible difference.

    Entrepreneurs Business Design Canvas 

    A 2-day program that validates business ideas

    This program is primarily for senior students who believe they have an idea for a new business. It can also be used for students who are generally interested in becoming entrepreneurs but may not have a specific idea they wish to develop. The 2-day program will benefit students to either confirm that their idea has genuine potential or help them to fail-fast by invalidating their idea and then helping them to decide whether to pivot to a new idea. It can also be used by entrepreneurs to find a team for their project. All 14-hours are facilitated experiential learning using the Minimum Viable Canvas, a tool that will define their business idea and business model.
