To bring about change we need to understand how to solve societal problems. And then – we need innovative decision-makers to lead.
Innovative decision makers:
- seek external inspiration for solutions,
- serve as pioneers for their organizations and
- cultivate a new way of seeing society’s emerging challenges and possibilities
We found that there are no programs out there teaching changemaking skills in an entrepreneurial and immersive way, deriving theory from learnings of practitioners and creating a space for changemakers to co-create. So, we decided to change that by founding the Ashoka Visionary Program in 2015 in Vienna, Austria.
