Today’s global challenges are complex and require solutions covering multiple perspectives. To be able to tackle these global challenges you need to be able to analyze complex systems and understand the relationships between numerous dynamic components. You need to be a global problem solver. The solving Global Challenges course helps you do exactly that. By joining a global challenge course, you will connect with a network of students from around the world, all with an interest in solving the same crucial challenge. Together you will learn to analyze the challenge from political, economic, social, environmental, scientific, and philosophical viewpoints. You will learn about the leading methods being used to tackle the challenge, and you will work with a team of your peers to develop an original action plan to contribute to the global solution. At the conclusion of the course, you and your team will present your action plan to a panel of judges. The top teams will receive awards to help you take your vision beyond the academy!
