Theme: Social Innovation
Have you ever felt like you are not satisfied with the current situation in the society? Do you think that there are better ways to build a community that #WeAllWin? What would be critical for tackling the current challenges, making significant and sustainable impacts in the world?
The theme of this year’s Autumn Training is social innovation. Social innovation plays an increasingly important role to bring impacts to the world. It comprises of entrepreneurship, creativity and improvement together. With an idea in social innovation, you can also build a social enterprise that is socially, financially, and sometimes environmentally sustainable. With the increasing concern about the humanitarian statuses in the world, the United Nations proposed the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. The goals cover different aspects of our daily lives, and they have inspired many young talents to develop their own projects to tackle some of them.
