Register here for the LOCAL IMPACT LAB. Facilitated by HUSE Innovation

May 30/31

The Local Impact Lab is an 8-hour collaborative workshop (4h x 2 mornings) where participants are invited to use their knowledge to create solutions for a specific challenge using innovation and creativity tools. It is an informal and relaxed space where the atmosphere is inspiring.

With high-profile speakers and mentors, the main goal is to be thought-provoking, create empathy, unleash creativity and generate real impact. We want ideas to jump out of the paper and become real.

Using a process based on the design thinking methodology, participants will be working in groups to develop solutions to problems in 3 distinct areas related to the Global Migrations topic such Employment, Multiculturalism and Integration.
