Fun for A Change is a social innovation challenge that encourages youth to come up with fun ways to create positive change. It’s about getting people to “do the right thing” and change behavior by using fun and game-like motivations. It’s about learning and applying game mechanics without necessarily creating a game. It’s about thinking outside the box and rethinking how we can change the world.
I am so proud of my team – we came in third place and here was our project: SMASHTRASH
The contest was created by Charles Tsai, this awesome super passionate guy who knows tons about social enterprise.
It is all especially perfect because I am turning my freelance work into a business which makes the world better. Reading Sacred Commerce is also inspiring my developing business model. I think this is all very funny because just as I was thinking and wishing there was a course on social entrepreneurship I could take… along comes this opportunity! Perfect!
Oh and I get to work with two of my favorite people, Colette and Diana on my team : )
We are going to make smart choices and sustainability easier and more fun. STOKED!
I’m doing this awesome Students in Free Enterprise challenge called “Fun for a Change” which is somewhat of a design contest that is educating me about Social Entrepreneurship and helping me to find more direction with my own freelance social enterprise. Love this video, the channel has some other good ones too.
