課程信息

The purpose of this course is to introduce you to current global challenges in conservation and development, including changes in both sectors. This course will inspire you to rethink assumptions to address global challenges in conservation and development, and introduce you to new models and approaches that harness technological, behavioral, and financial innovation. This course will equip you with the insights, skills and approaches necessary to successfully overcome these obstacles. In addition, this course will provide participants with the tools, models, and approaches to address global grand challenges in conservation and development, to question fundamental assumptions, and to create and execute new solutions. Course participants will be trained in the processes around innovation and design to address global grand challenges. This includes content focused on constructing innovation pipelines, principals of design and engineering unique to the developing world and to conservation (Design for the Other 90%), on harnessing and developing disruptive technologies, principles of behavior and marketing, and on overcoming the challenges with setting up social ventures. The course format will facilitate the development of a global community of innovators who will help solve the current and future grand challenges our planet faces in conservation and development, and will encourage thinking about how to do so that rethinks traditional assumptions and approaches within both conservation and development. This course will leverage the incredible idealism and interest in social entrepreneurship, design, and innovation among the millennials, in the US and abroad, and is intended to appeal to those interested in the maker movement. It also seeks to engage individuals in the developing world who are closest to the problems of conservation and development, who would benefit from the approaches taught in the course, and who can leverage their own knowledge of local culture....

This is wonderful opportunity to be at home and learn things which matter. The course was fluent without any drawbacks. But i would suggest the team to look into the issues that come while peer graded assignments. Its almost impossible to reach the concerned through e-mails or calls. Other than that I had good time learning. Thank You!

This is exactly the kind of course every conservation and development practitioner needs to take to really understand the opportunities offered by the digital revolution and the lean start-up / agile development approach. This is a masterpiece in bringing these three worlds together. Alex deserves a "big brain" award for bringing this all together in such a compelling and optimistic manner. Nice work.
