Who are the people who bring about great changes in our world? How do they do it? Inspired by Getting Beyond Better, the book by Roger L. Martin and Sally R. Osberg, participants in the I-Think Summer Institute will explore the mindsets and tools of social entrepreneurs. These inspiring leaders—call them disrupters, visionaries, or change makers—develop, build, and scale their solutions to bring about truly lasting social change. But to succeed in bringing about that change requires a different kind of thinking. I-Think offers students who really want to change the world the opportunity to learn to think like a social entrepreneur and apply Integrative Thinking to a real-world challenge.

Maximum City is an award-winning spring and summer program and enriched curricular experience for young city builders. It is taught by leading experts and is hosted on the University of Toronto campus and nearby sites. The program includes a range of hands-on activities in urban topics such as architecture, design, the environment, technology, the arts, civic engagement, and mobility. The program culminates in a design challenge which asks students to collaborate on a real-life problem in our urban environment and present their solutions to a panel of experts and decision-makers. Each week at Maximum City focuses on a different urban theme such as designing better public spaces or welcoming newcomers; students are encouraged to sign up for single or multiple weeks as each theme is a stand-alone topic.
