What is The Good People?

The Good People is an immersive 5-week part-time online program for designers and innovators who want to make a difference.

A cohort of driven changemakers will join us for series of five interactive, fast-paced workshops over 5 weeks. You’ll be invited to complete independent and collaborative project tasks between sessions to apply your learning, and you’ll have access to a series of integrated online modules to enrich your experience.

This program covers the core skills, tools and mindsets you need to understand and make progress on complex social issues, and to design yourself a career with impact.

Is this program for me?

This is the perfect introduction to the world of social innovation and impact, and we think it will be a great fit for you if you are:

🌳 An experienced innovator who wants to use your skills to give back to the community

💁 A newcomer who wants to find your feet in the world of non-profits and social enterprise

🚀 A young person who wants to tackle big issues and make a meaningful impact

⚡️ Someone who wishes their work was a little bit more fulfilling and impactful.
