Skills of the Modern Age (SoMA) invite you to join The Good People: an immersive 5-week online program for designers and innovators who want to make a difference. With weekly interactive workshops and a range of challenging, hands-on projects and activities, this is the perfect introduction to the world of social impact. Together with an intimate cohort of like-minded changemakers, you'll explore the key ideas and frameworks for social innovation, and you'll leave with a range of new social impact skills and tools at your disposal.

Make change that matters.

Big, pressing social issues aren't hard to find in today's world. From the looming problems of climate change and growing inequality to more immediate crises in areas such as mental health, homelessness and race relations, the need for action to instigate positive change in our society is clear. By building your skillset as a designer and innovator, you can learn to better understand complex problems and to collaborate with others to make meaningful progress on issues that matter.

What will you learn?

The Good People covers the core skills, tools and mindsets you need to design powerful interventions for complex social issues. You're invited to join an interactive, fast-paced 2-hour workshop each week for 5 weeks, with up to 90 minutes of in-depth independent and collaborative tasks to complete between sessions to put your new skills and knowledge into practice. The maximum total time commitment for the program is 3.5 hours per week for 5 weeks.

Program details:

Start date: Thurs 5th November 2020
Start time: 4pm AWST / 7pm AEDT
