Social Innovation

Create positive and lasting change

Positive change, especially when complex and deeply rooted problems are involved, requires collaboration, risk taking and new ways of thinking. From poverty to climate change to violence, people are looking to transform old paradigms and shake up existing political, economic and cultural arrangements.

Much more than a buzzword, “social innovation” is an umbrella term to describe thinking and practices that help people and organizations experiment, learn and collaborate to produce lasting change.

With our part-time certificate, you'll learn to navigate through complex social, political, cultural and economic systems; cultivate new leadership capacities; and hone your skills for developing the creative, transformative solutions our society needs.
