Rocketing carbon emissions, air pollution, trash in oceans, plastic waste all over cities … all these are burning issues for our environment. Are you feeling down and worried?

But there are always more solutions than problems. Innovation will come from something. With special coaching, innovative solutions can be born out of just a sudden spark in your mind.

Through “Design Thinking”, the most popular social innovation method these days, the “Design Thinking Boot Camp” provides participants with green yearnings the chance to meet environmental experts from different spheres, to get an update on various issues and to build innovative solutions together.

Many other exciting sessions also await you in this two-day camp. You will enjoy the opportunity to take a deeper look at your own talents and enthusiasm, interact with the experts, exchange ideas with others and then try your hands on designing a really practical plan, building up from initial conceptualisation. You can form your dream team to work on your green start-up idea

We see problems on earth, in the ocean and in the air every day. If you refuse to turn a blind eye to them, you are welcome to join our Boot Camp -- to jam ideas with like-minded people, build innovative teams and be part of the force to reduce carbon and mitigate climate change!
