Sustainable Futures

Creating Sustainable Solutions To Challenges In Our Local Community



About The Program

Our Sustainable Futures program provides a platform for students to tap into their creativity and problem-solving skills to make a difference in the world. By focusing on major sustainability challenges such as fast fashion, plastic pollution, and food waste, students are encouraged to think outside the box and come up with innovative solutions to some of the world's biggest sustainability problems. 

Students collaborate and engage in brainstorming sessions within teams to pinpoint the significant causes of waste issues and develop solutions for their selected challenge area. Whether it's developing a new app to promote sustainable shopping habits, creating an eco-friendly invention, designing a circular business model, or offering a service to reduce waste, the possibilities are endless. This program aims to align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production, contributing to a more sustainable future for all.

During the design sprint, students immerse themselves in the world of sustainable practices and explore various initiatives that have successfully tackled waste management issues. By studying these innovative solutions, they gain valuable insights into what works and what doesn't in the fight against waste. By combining research, innovation, and user-centric design principles, students are well-equipped to create a solution that is not only impactful but also sustainable in the long run.
