U.Lab Amsterdam: Focus On Social Change
Together with Impact Hub Amsterdam, Create2Connect and the Presencing Institue again orgazine a series of innovation sessions along Otto Scharmer’s U.Lab course that starts on September 8th. We like to invite you to take part in a social change development program aimed at change makers like you. Find all information at: http://amsterdam.impacthub.net/ulab/.
Guided by the Global Goals for Sustainable Development we will be forming groups to dig deeper into the issues and prototype solutions which can potentially grow into businesses. Varying from Health, to Education, Clean air, Gender equality and more, these deeply rooted issues don’t have easy answers. In our rapid paced, interconnected societies it can be challenging to see the bigger picture and understand how to make an impact. We need a different approach.
Therefore we will work with the approach known as U.Lab. This is a way of leading profound change that has been developed by Otto Scharmer and his action researchers at MIT in Boston. On September 8th we will be forming issue-based groups with the people who will be prototyping solutions over the next 9 weeks. You can join as an individual or as an already existing team.
There will be a strong focus on prototyping and offering business support, which is why we are asking for a membership fee at the Impact Hub Amsterdam from participants who want to join. If you are serious about starting a project/business or digging deeper into a global issue together with a group, then join us on this journey.
If you want to join the Kick Off session, make sure to get your U.Lab Connect Membership. If you are already an Impact Hub Member, select the free IH AMS ticket option. If you have questions, make sure you connect with us before the start of the course on September 8th.
We look forward to seeing you on the 8th,
The Amsterdam ULab team
