Today we will come together to think deeply about our own ideas for social impact by working through a Social Lean Canvas. This will culminate in giving 60 second pitches to share our ideas with the group.

This is our final design thinking challenge. Together we will go through the steps of the design thinking process to find an innovative way to keep this new community connected and creating impact even after you return home.


Our final project together will be done individually and will also depict what we will take back with us as we think about how to tackle the personal and professional tasks that lie before us as changemakers. Reflection is just one more tool that helps deepen the process and power of sustainable design.
