Learn the core skills, tools and mindsets you need to design powerful interventions for complex social issues with our social impact program - The Good People.
Big, pressing social issues aren't hard to find in today's world. From the looming problems of climate change and growing inequality to more immediate crises in areas such as mental health, homelessness and race relations, the need for action to instigate positive change in our society is clear. By building your skillset as a designer and innovator, you can learn to better understand complex problems and to collaborate with others to make meaningful progress on issues that matter.
The Good People covers the core skills, tools and mindsets you need to design powerful interventions for complex social issues.
We’ll explore some of the key concepts in social change work, and you'll be invited to investigate how your skills can help you to make a difference in a meaningful and sustainable way.
You’ll select a wicked problem you'd like to tackle, and learn techniques for rapid research and empathy to gain a deeper understanding of how people really experience that problem.
We’ll introduce you to systems thinking, and invite you to map the deeper system of structures, stakeholders and feedback that holds your problem in place.
This session will address some of the myths around how social change happens, and will introduce you to a range of strategies changemakers can employ to make progress on issues that matter.
Reflecting on your key insights from the program, you’ll be invited to think about how you can apply the design methodology to your own career in order to craft yourself a life with greater impact.
Here are just a few of the key ideas and frameworks we'll draw upon across the program:
As a social impact program, we want The Good People to be as accessible as possible for innovators who are keen to learn. We are able to offer a limited number of free scholarship places for people who would not otherwise be able to access the program.
If you're interested in one of these scholarship places, or otherwise require financial support to be able to access this program, please get in touch with Matt on 0411 868 925 or at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'd love to chat!
