Our Learning Journey
Every How to Change the World program guides participants like you through the same overarching Learning Journey — one that over 6,500 participants have experienced since 2014.
Our fully-virtual program
Our fully virtual programs will provide you with a global network while empowering you to tackle real-world sustainability and innovation challenges from the comfort and safety of your home.
Students who participate in our one-of-a-kind experiential program work in international, interdisciplinary teams to tackle the world's sustainability challenges.
Educators who join our programs benefit from our signature Train-the-Trainer program that provides them with the knowledge and practice to design and deliver experiential education... even in fully-virtual environments.
Support local communities
Throughout the program students and educators both engage with local leaders and stakeholders to co-develop innovative ideas that can have a real impact on the sustainability challenges their community is facing.
When students & educators complete our program, they join our growing global community
We are building a diverse global community on the principles of continuous learning, collaboration and professional development. All alumni of our programs – including both students and educators – are warmly welcomed to join and co-develop the community with us.
Both student and educator alumni join a growing network of diverse colleagues from around the world with whom they can exchange experience and knowledge, and build new collaborations.
Our growing community enables alumni to discover new pathways to positive impact – from students finding jobs; to faculty finding research collaborators; to everyone developing entrepreneurial ideas, together.
From guided learning experiences, to mentorship from experienced colleagues, to peer-to-peer learning opportunities – we work with our community members to foster a culture of continuous learning.
