Diploma in Social Innovation


The U.N. University for Peace’s Centre for Executive Education has just launched its online Diploma in Social Innovation.

But what does it mean to be a social innovator?

A social innovator has intentionally nurtured those skills that cannot be outsourced, that are intrinsically human, and which are essential in the Conceptual Age that we live in. They embrace the core values espoused by the United Nations – that we are one human family living in a highly interdependent and fragile world. The big issues facing us in the 21st Century – from climate change to poverty alleviation – require a new kind of thinking.  And finally, social innovators, through their journey of pursuing a positive impact on society, are simultaneously ensuring meaning in their own lives. owning a domain name . It’s a journey towards positive impact, outwards and inwards too.

The Diploma offers you the opportunity to take 5 of Centre’s cutting-edge online courses at a reduced tuition over an 18-month period. We invite you to consider this Diploma and network with a group of individuals who have decided to invest in themselves and emerge with a mindset that’s equipped to flourish in our fast-changing world.
