The DO School is on the hunt for exceptional budding social entrepreneurs from across the globe to take part in their latest Challenge. If you think you might have what it takes then why not apply now?
The DO School is an innovative educational institution offering training, mentoring, and education to outstanding emerging social entrepreneurs to kickstart their own ventures all around the world. They offer a unique oneyear program which takes place in two phases, the ten-week Incubation Phase on campus and the tenmonth Implementation Phase in the Fellows’ home countries. During the Incubation Phase Fellows solve a group Challenge to learn handson how to act entrepreneurially and successfully take action.
This Challenge is an exciting one! The DO School has teamed up with H&M to bring us the Green Store Challenge, in which Fellows are asked to create a sustainable store prototype for the future. The prototype should be scalable to H&M stores worldwide, be economically beneficial and make the idea of sustainability tangible for customers and employees. In a time when concerns about careless consumption are rising, this challenge is a chance to help create more conscious consumers worldwide, as well as boosting the innovation of a multinational company!
To help them solve the Challenge, Fellows will work with leading experts and conduct research in areas such as sustainable retail design, recycling systems and the environmental impact of construction materials. It’s not all learning though, the Fellows will actually get to DO something big as they put their ideas to a real life test. The DOing doesn’t end here, as after they solve the Challenge the Fellows return to their home countries and receive support as they put their own social venture ideas into action.
