I live deliberately. And what drives me is my desire to Design Positive Impact. I believe that this world has enough opportunity for everyone: my focus is on empowering and inspiring those around me to become fully engaged in their world by increasing their ability to make a positive impact. This focus is who I am, and can be seen in everything I do.
Hello Nkeng Pius, Sadly I report that due to insufficient funding, we haven't done any tree planting. This was an idea that never took off, as I don't have the resources to do it myself.
However, I still believe in the idea, and think that grafting (and the right selection of trees) is a great way to further improve the viability and impact of this idea. I'd love to know more about NDEF Cameroon.
Andrea Zelenak I really like this idea and I think that it applies to every type of degree. In some cases, I think this could even replace the 4th year of University as it would apply the concepts that were learned and would allow students to apply (and retain) their learning through application - which would greatly increase the value of the educational experience. The only challenge of doing it in the 5th year, that I can think of, is if it costs more money (for another year) it would move the experience out of some students' reach.
Peizhi Lee I am really intrigued by this idea, and am interested to see where it leads. I am wondering, though, if there is a way to make the process more user-friendly (not requiring Data-Scientist-Like skills to thrive)? If there was a way of engaging more people than just University grads with a strength or desire in this field, the I would think that the content and outcomes would benefit from the increased participant diversity.
