"Innovation skills are crucial for your employability, no matter what career you aspire to, and will accelerate your impact, no matter what issues you are passionate about. Innovation is a mindset, process and toolkit you can learn. It’s about problem-solving and implementing new ideas in order to create social, economic or environmental good."
