  • How can we solve problems while still taking care of people and the planet?
  • Do businesses have to be profit-focused?

What is social innovation, anyway?

  • This Fall, LAUNCH campers will explore how social innovation (an idea that works for the public
    good) is changing the way in which we solve problems in the 21st century.
  • Campers will develop public speaking, entrepreneurial, collaboration, reflection, creative and critical thinking skills.
  • Hands-on activities, games, case-studies, competitions and discussions will allow participants to
    better understand the role of social innovation in transforming the way in which we satisfy wants
    and needs in 2016.
  • The aim of this LAUNCH camp is to instill value and appreciation for the role of
    social innovation as a driving force in human history.
