C4SI 2021

Sign up here!


C4SI is an experiential education program that challenges students and young professionals to engage innovatively with pressing social issues.


We adopt a learn-by-doing approach. Our participants are divided into teams, each receiving one challenge by a leading organization in a specific field. Over the course of one month, they will attend workshops on the stages of design thinking, data visualization, public speaking, and other relevant themes to co-create social innovations in response to the global and local social problems identified by our challenge setters. Teams will also receive individual support from mentors with relevant professional experience to hone their solutions and prepare for the final presentation on Demo Day. 


This year, C4SI will begin with a kick-off event on October 1st, and workshops will take place every Saturday during October. The program culminates in a Demo Day in which teams pitch their solutions to a panel of experienced judges. The winning team will get a networking lunch with their challenge setters sponsored by C4SI!


C4SI is a unique opportunity to learn about design thinking and social innovation, solve real-world challenges faced by a variety of organizations, and network with some of the most renowned IOs and NGOs in Geneva.
