Laurent Roussel, first recipient of the Diploma in Social Innovation
I’ve started taking the courses of the “Diploma in Social Innovation” early in 2013 and completed the program in December. I wanted to build a social network “WICO-Projects” that will help people that share the same human, ecological and economical values to co-create local projects, activities, or small businesses, thereby raising the level of individual and collective fulfillment.
All the courses were great and helped me so much to conceptualize this international and innovative project. I really appreciate the content of the courses, sharing with other students, and the expertise of the teachers. I feel happy to start this new year with the strong basis, motivation and confidence necessary to concretely develop this project in Montreal, Canada where I live.
With my deepest gratitude to UPEACE Centre for Executive Education and it’s team, I highly recommend this diploma to all the people that want to make a difference and create innovative social projects, the type of projects we need to co-create a wonderful, equitable and loving world we ALL deserve to live in.
