Whether you have no prior experience or exposure on the topics of social entrepreneurship / social innovation or sustainable development and want to learn about it or you want to expand your existing knowledge on the topic. Our goal is to cater to both ends and help you achieve that by engaging with communities, social entrepreneurs, innovators and civil society.
