Global Discovery Program virtual Study Tour 2020 theme

How will you use technology to drive change?

We are in the midst of a digital revolution and change is happening faster than ever.

Change and technology can make a positive impact in a number of different ways including improving wellbeing, raising productivity, connectivity and responding to crises such as the current COVID-19 pandemic.

However in recent years we have also witnessed technological innovations be compromised, which has led to serious ramifications. It can interfere with democratic elections, disrupt the labour market and we can lose control of our personal information.

How will you use technology to drive change? Articulate an idea that encompasses how you will drive positive change in the world. What values are aligned to this idea and how is driving change important to you?

Applications are now open to Monash students to submit an application that includes a 60-second video on a predetermined theme selected by the Global Leaders’ Network.

Previous ‘themes’ have included:

  • What will your impact be?
  • Anything is possible
  • Be the Change
  • What will you discover?
  • Where will your ideas take you? Just imagine.
  • How will you embrace an innovative mindset?

For 2020, the selected theme of the program is How will you use technology to drive change?”, with the question students are to articulate in their application an idea that encompasses how they will drive positive change in the world. What values are aligned to this idea and how is driving change important to you?

Travel across the globe virtually and experience New York City and what it has to offer, explore future possibilities, is this your next step?
