Have you wondered how you can make an impact on the world and contribute to social change? Innis College, in partnership with The Agency, is excited to present the Social Innovation Certificate program.
This program provides students with the opportunity to understand Social Innovation and Impact, and learn how to become change-makers!
Below were the topics and events that occurred as part of the Social Innovation Certificate in previous years. Stay tuned for more information for this school year’s details! In the meantime, if you’re interested in learning more details when it becomes available, please complete this Innis College Student Life Opportunities form.
Examples of sessions include:
1) Social Impact 101: What is social innovation? How is it connected to the United Nations Sustainability Goals? How can I get involved and make a difference?
2) Careers with Purpose: Students interact in a “living library” focusing on careers that will create change in the world. The “books” are social innovators who want to help you by sharing their experiences.
3) Road Trip!: Get off campus and explore change-makers and social innovators in their places of work/community. Past examples of amazing experiences include: A trip to Karma Co-Op and the Centre for Social Innovation, and a tour of the Discovery District and MaRS.
