A unique team-building activity aligned to the UN Sustainable Development Goals to help you mobilise your people and harness participation around your sustainability and purpose journey.
The session begins with a 20 minute TedX Style presentation on the UN SDG’s Impactful brands and the importance of corporate citizenship. Followed by an immersive hands on session - using design thinking, Solve the 17 sees participants collaborate in teams to discover, define, develop, design and deliver a solution to one of the 17 UN SDGs.
The Sustainable Development Goals are a call to action with three overarching aims:
Fight inequality and injustice
End extreme poverty
Tackle climate change
In teams, employees will collaborate to discover, define, develop, design and deliver a unique solution to a global issue we currently face in relation to one of the 17 SDGs.
Solve The 17 has been curated by an exceptionally skilled team of educators, innovators and designers to provide employees with an interactive, educational program that creates real-world solutions to the most pressing global issues we face.
