Unleash creativity, collaboration and innovation with an in-the-moment student advocacy project

Stop the clock

Help your students learn in the moment with IMPACT, the transdisciplinary project-based challenge where students demonstrate awareness, action, advocacy and agency against the backdrop of current world issues and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Global perspective

Global events over the last few years have had far-reaching consequences for the UN's 17 Global Goals. Students will think globally and act locally, using design thinking and an entrepreneurial mind set to innovate and prototype a solution to a problem currently being faced in another country.

In the moment

IMPACT presents a unique opportunity for students to work at the same time on the same issues as world leaders. IMPACT brings together resources that will guide them to translate knowledge and understanding into innovations that solve real-world problems.

During IMPACT, students manage their own learning and build competencies across four key areas: core skills, innovation, leadership and enterprise – helping them to stand out from the crowd on job or UCAS/college applications.

What is IMPACT?

IMPACT is a project-based challenge for students aged 16–19. Students collaborate in teams to research the UN Sustainable Development Goals, identify a problem faced by a different country during the pandemic, and use innovation and design thinking skills to create a solution – before communicating it to the world!

IMPACT has been created by Derek Browne and Ian Smith – leading innovators in the fields of entrepreneurship and global citizenship respectively.

Both authors have been awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise Promotion.

IMPACT has been designed as an enrichment programme for international schools all over the world. However, it has some unique applications and benefits for International Baccalaureate and Cambridge International students.

Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS): IMPACT supports the aims and objectives of the CAS syllabus – inspiring students to investigate, act on an identified problem, innovate, problem-solve, collaborate and reflect on their experiences.
