About this EventAdd to calendar
Driven by challenges such as the COVID-19 pandemic, racial injustice, and climate change, many have come to fear the “new normal” that we are all facing. But must this new normal necessarily be a diminished or broken version of reality that simply happens to us? The Studio-Lab pursues the creation of a “better normal” using an interdisciplinary exploration of how transformative ideas from the liberal arts developed by Harvard students can be applied to today’s societal challenges. You will work to develop actionable solutions to pressing issues, using the starting framework of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. You will learn to identify and properly analyze a problem; work collaboratively to ideate and create an actionable approach; build an organizational strategy and business plan; network with expertise to pressure-test your ideas; and persuasively communicate your ideas to build the requisite human capital and funding relationships to launch a venture. The term will culminate in a Festival of Ideas, where individuals and teams will have opportunities to seek support to move their projects along. Through your efforts, you will reimagine a better normal for society and take meaningful action to make it a reality.
