Social Innovation Camp


In today’s increasingly fast-paced and globally interconnected world, an aspiring professional should have the skills to work in a completely unfamiliar environment.

Everything, from the tools we use and the ways we do things, is evolving rapidly, therefore an important role of education is to help people develop the skills which help them get their feet on the ground quickly in a new environment and be creators of solutions.
