Join our social innovation community

Do you want to make an impact? GreenHouse is an innovation community for students and community members who want to create ideas and ventures that generate social or environmental change.  

You can engage with this community in three main ways:

  • Attend a Discovery Lab, where students, community members and a host organization identify problems and opportunity spaces based on a given theme.

  • Join a Workplace Innovation Team, a program for aspiring innovators to work with organizations exploring and solving complex problems in the social or environmental sector.

  • Join the Innovators in Residence Program, a live-in incubator that supports students wanting to tackle problems through venture creation, policy change, grassroots initiatives among other avenues.

Elle and Richard share their GreenHouse stories. You can do more to shape the world as well.
