What you'll learn in this productivity class:

In this workshop, we will look at ideas about making a difference in the information and tech age, innovation and solutions that change the world, and how to triumph over the obstacles to achieving them. Whether you are looking to infuse more purpose and meaning into your life, or to create and tackle a specific project to make a difference, this interactive and interdisciplinary class will give you the context, practical tools, and grand vision to truly have an impact in the world, in your way.

We will draw on ideas from such themes as history, psychology, neuroscience, art, literature, history, philosophy, economics, and technology, to unwrap our ideas about changing the world. We will look at what gets in the way, and how to move past these challenges. From finding support, to learning about others’ stories, to finding our values and purpose, we will flesh out our projects, put them into action, and plan where to go from here.

  • Why we want to change the world
  • Why we don’t, and what gets in the way
  • Ideas about how to change the world and the inspiration and opportunities all around us
  • Identification of our values, passions, and how we want to be engaged
  • Mapping out and developing your own project
  • Actionable steps to change the world and make an impact
