Howdy, world changers! As you are reading this, I am trekking the Inca Trail (or doing something else exciting on my two week trip). But, I didn’t want to leave the blog null and void for that long, so I scheduled this post ahead of time. Coursera in general is a really great thing. It makes college level courses available to anyone with internet for free! But, one course in particular has become available and it is really exciting. It is called “How to Change the World“. Check out the information below, and sign up if you’re interested! I think I am doing that once I get back!
How to Change the World has its origins in the Social Good Summit held at the 92nd Street Y in New York. The summit brought together some of the world’s most creative entrepreneurs, writers, academics and political leaders to discuss ways innovative thinking and technology can address pressing global challenges. Beginning from talks, panels and conversations from the summit, we will add lectures, on-line discussion groups, hangouts and readings to explore the issues in politics, technology and the environment in broader academic and historical contexts. We will then discover together what actions we can take to make a difference.
