Application Deadline: It’s Time to be Bold

October 28, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

You might have heard of “social innovation.” You may be a social entrepreneur or think you want to be one. No matter where you are on the path, we only ask:

Do you want to be an Adventurist?

Social innovators are Adventurists. Working in small groups and large teams, locally and globally, they are challenging conventional thought and exploring new methods and partnerships that are leading to social change. The journeys of our Adventurists are about learning and we’ve got a forum that brings together students, mentors, and experts to exchange and explore ideas in social innovation.

It’s Time To Be Bold Social Innovation at UofT

It’s Time to be Bold will provide a platform for exchange within the University and with outside partners to the benefit of students. With focused sessions on topics such as going global, top research, experiential learning, careers in social innovation and many more, students will be able to connect with people who are working on facets of social innovation.

The day will give participants more clarity over the topic, surfacing existing initiatives and opportunities, nurturing potential partnerships and strengthening the collective commitment to social innovation and social entrepreneurship.
