The SolutionsU team has designed and is launching easy-to-adopt tools for innovation-minded professionals and organizations. We call this SolutionsU (PRO). We’ve wrapped unique, flexible “products” around the best solutions journalism stories that describe social innovations covering myriad issues from around the world. These tools can be used by individual professionals, teams, and/or your overall organization.
We aspire to offer you a unique, easy, self-directed and inspiring approach to help your organization build and/or enhance your CULTURE of EMPATHY, PURPOSE, INNOVATION, CONTINUOUS LEARNING and TEAM/RELATIONSHIP BUILDING.
30+ “best in class” social innovation stories (mini-cases) selected by our leadership. More added weekly.
We’ve used the Canvas education software platform popular with universities. Onboarding, webinars + in-person workshops available.
We’ve designed offerings for individuals and professionals in both the corporate and social sector. Click here to reach out to Greg Van Kirk to learn more.
Collections are versatile, powerful and simple to create. From a customized course reader to an action-guide for an upcoming service-learning trip, collections illuminate themes, guide inquiry, and provide context for how people around the world are responding to social challenges.
