Experience U.Lab @ Impact Hub Geneva

  • Do you want to learn a powerful framework and a method for profound change, both individual and collective?
  • Do you want to innovate, prototype and contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals?
  • Are you ready to embark on a transformative journey to be more connected to the more authentic aspects of who you are and discover how you can have an impact on the system around you?
Are you up for the challenge?   Starting 21 September, the Presencing Institute and the Impact Hub network are partnering up to bring the open 13-week online edX/MITx course U.Lab: Leading from the Emerging Future to 40+ Impact Hub locations around the world.
Get involved by joining us on Thursday September 14th at 19h15 at Impact Hub Geneva for the introduction and information session or by registering below!  

Why u.lab ?

Many of the problems we face with how our goods are produced, distributed and consumed don’t have easy answers. People locally and globally, whether citizens, local businesses or large manufacturers, struggle to see the bigger picture, or understand how to make an impact. We need a different approach.  

What is u.lab ?

It is a way of leading profound change that has been developed by action researchers at MIT, and practiced by leaders around the world for over 20 years. From Sept. 21 to Dec. 21, we will host biweekly coaching circles at the Impact Hub to put in practice collectively what we learn in the online modules independently.   See the complete syllabus here.  

Sustainable Living as the u.lab focus

Many of us want to achieve sustainable development and curb global warming. What if here in Geneva we developed sustainable living solutions that enabled ordinary people to adopt eco-friendly lifestyles ? For example:
  • consuming consciously and according to needs instead of excessive consumerism;
  • reducing waste and increasing recycling, reusing or composting;
  • shifting to a low-carbon economy and society in the near future.
Let’s tackle this together !  

For whom ?

We are convening a group of 12 people for a 13-week programme to jointly find these answers for Geneva and beyond. Entrepreneurs, retailers, manufacturers, students, caterers, distributors, policy-makers, innovators, activists, writers and anyone interested in a sustainable future – come and join us.
