Our training contains a unique blend of three methodologies—design thinking, circular design & contemplative practices—which, when connected, offer a transformative 21st-century innovation learning experience.
We empower students to touch people deeply by observing mindfully, listening empathically, and being vulnerable and compassionate. We also focus on sustainability, diversity, and radical collaboration. All while learning through ambiguity, rapid prototypes, and failure. We also have tons of serious fun.
