The Presencing Institute and the Impact Hub network are partnering to bring the edX / MITx course U.Lab: Transforming Business, Society, and Self to 43 Impact Hub locations around the world. We believe in the power of social change through entrepreneurial action, and see the potential for locally-rooted, globally connected communities of change-makers to catalyze systemic change with the support and learning available through the U.Lab course. Get involved by registering for the U.Lab at edX.org, and joining your local Impact Hub!
Why take the U.Lab course at your local Impact Hub?
Impact Hubs around the world have created a unique and complementary experience for participants of the online course U.Lab: Transforming Business, Society, and Self. Inside any of these Impact Hubs, you will find the perfect environment for learning, connection and prototyping that will help you meet like-minded individuals taking the course and support the outcomes of your U.Lab experience. If you live near an Impact Hub, we invite you to join us on the U.Lab journey! We are offering a special membership package for U.Lab participants. By becoming a member of your local Impact Hub during U.Lab, you would receive the following membership benefits:*
- Introduction to people in your local impact ecosystem – entrepreneurs, changemakers and regional stakeholders – who are working to create a world that works for all.
- A hosted environment that will support your journey through U.Lab by offering the space, community and connections to bring the course and your ideas to life.
- A beautiful and well-equipped meeting place for live sessions and group activities with your fellow U.Lab participants
- Impact Hub membership benefits which enable you to become a part of a global community of over 11,000 other Impact Hub Members worldwide who are building this globally connected – locally rooted movement for positive social impact.
*The online U.Lab course is free and may be taken on your own without any additional cost by registering directly on the edX site. If you are inspired to participate in the course at an Impact Hub, sign up to the first U.Lab gathering at your local Impact Hub for free. If you decide you want to stay with Impact Hub for the entire course, this will come with the above stated membership benefits in addition to a local registration fee. Prices vary according to the local membership tariffs- but we promise it is affordable!
