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 microcredit challenge is simple: your team has one week, $100 and only the limits of its own creativity to create as much social change and raise as much money as possible.
The Microcredit Challenge is a one week competition where Global Agents funds competing teams of 2-5 members with $100 “microloans”. Teams have one week to use their entrepreneurial skills to raise as much money and create as much social change as possible using only this original loan.
At the end of the week the loan and proceeds are paid back to The Global Agents Catalyst Initiative, which are funds used to help developing world entrepreneurs pull themselves and their families out of poverty.
I worked on the blog, poster and these videos. Check it out!
