Emerging from Crisis
Innovating for Sustainable Impact

Session Overview

Our session is a facilitated sneak peak into the world of ‘Design Thinking & Problem Solving’, where participants will be organised into small teams and guided through a practical framework for innovation, based on a real-world sustainability challenge.
We will hear case studies from industry leaders on how this method is being applied to generate positive impact, while 
uncovering the specific opportunities to improve learning 
engagement & encourage growth mindset.


Topic for the workshop:

How can we improve learning engagement and well-being while considering the theme of: People, Planet & Prosperity*

*The theme interlinks social well being, environmental health & economic welfare.

Who is this for?


Students & teachers returning to the classroom who believe we can (and should) work together to build an even better, ‘greener’ university life under the “new normal”.

Why Take Part?


Participants can expect to enhance their creativity, critical thinking & teamwork skills, through a series of interactive activities. They will learn to develop solutions and pitch their ideas to industry experts. Our goal is to help students expand their networks, inspire sustainable innovation and create greater awareness of future work opportunities.
