|INNOVATING FOR SUSTAINABLE IMPACT
The purpose of this course is to explore how social innovation can be used to build more sustainable and impactful solutions to pressing environmental and social challenges. Despite the incredible progress in the overall level of human development over the past century, a number of significant global challenges persist in both developed and developing countries, including generational poverty, discrimination, corruption, and climate change. This is primarily a project-based course with a focus on working directly with disadvantaged populations in Costa Rica to collectively identify innovative business models that are capable of providing meaningful work to such individuals.
