Impact Week Philippines, a design thinking challenge, gathered industry experts from across the world and students from the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB) to create innovative solutions for local problems.

The nonprofit program aims to promote creativity, entrepreneurship, and intercultural exchange among developing and emerging economies.

The four-day workshop encouraged participants to formulate feasible strategies that address inclusion, sustainable urban planning and tourism, energy transition in mobility, digitalization, and disaster relief.

A group of international coaches from different countries likewise offered mentoring opportunities and guidance to the students.

The initiative was organized by Impact Week in collaboration with the college’s Hub of Innovation for Inclusion (HiFi), Center for Partnership Advancement, and School of Diplomacy and Governance (SDG).
