SDG School 2020 (Online) | Maker’s Asylum

Maker’s Asylum is back with its flagship program this year in December with its various partners to work on problems aligned to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and continue the yearly tradition! With over 500 alumni now in 25 countries the program has a rich pool of interdisciplinary individuals that have joined to create social impact over the years. We have hosted the program in Mumbai, Paris and this year we are creating the experience online so that you can stay home and still get access to the varied community of mentors and peers from across the globe!

As 2021 marks the beginning of the The Decade of Action, it calls for accelerating sustainable solutions to all the world’s biggest challenges — ranging from poverty and gender to climate change, inequality and closing the finance gap. We invite you to join our pledge of igniting 100 SDG based actionable projects as part of the program. We all need to act now and act together!

During these 2 intensive weeks, you will be exposed to global scenarios, new methodologies and will be trained to think like a social entrepreneur to prototype a meaningful project.
