Digital Changemakers Summit

General Information

On March 29th and 30th, the Chair of Corporate Social Responsibility organizes the 22nd Sustainable Business Summit, and 2nd „Digital Changemakers Summit“.

During the two day event, 40 Mannheim students will work together in groups mentored by practitioners to develop concepts for digital solutions to social and/or environmental problems. Software engineers will be present to advise students during the development process (no prior technical or programming skills are required). The goal of the interactive workshop is to develop a mock-up of a digital solution (e.g., a website or an app) and a social business model canvas for its application. More broadly, the workshop aims to raise awareness of the positive potential of digitalization to remedy social and environmental challenges.
