About the Program:
Questions addressed: Is it possible to make the world work for 100% of humanity? Do we have the resources, technology and money to do it? How? This program also covers the book by the same name that is filled with a series of affordable, sustainable and just designs and strategic plans for transforming the world— and that were developed by STUDENTS (like yours) over the last five years at the annual Design Science Lab run each year at the UN and at Chestnut Hill College by GEM and BigPictureSmallWorld. The program can cover food, water, energy, education, health care, shelter, the environment and economics broadly or one of these topics in depth.
