Global Think Tank (SEED)

For the latest information, check the program website.


An evolution of Monash SEED's 'World Innovation Challenge', the Global Think Tank (GTT) is a program that connects students around the world in order to address a social impact issue prevalent in each university's locality. Taking place across 7 days, students will be placed into teams, and will be tasked with designing a social enterprise or not-for-profit that will seek to better a social impact issue. Students will be given the opportunity to develop their skills through a number of skill-building workshops which will be facilitated by experts from around the globe. At the program's conclusion, students will pitch their ideas to an international panel of judges. The winning team will receive a monetary prize which can then be used towards transforming their social enterprise concept into a functioning social enterprise.

Program details

GTT will educate students through peer collaboration, workshops and other opportunities. It will equip students with skills and knowledge whereby they can become instruments of positive change. In addition to this, GTT will allow students to engage in meaningful conversation about the nature of social impact and enterprise, on a global scale.
