Societal issues are everyone’s issues. However, we believe that students and young professionals can play a leading role in the sustainability transition. With Issue Killers they are trained, asked, and supported to voice their beliefs and motivate others to contribute to a more inclusive and sustainable society.
During the 12-week program, students and young professionals between the ages of 18 and 27 with different educational backgrounds work together in groups to create a public campaign. They receive different training sessions, campaign workshops from advertising agencies, and inspirational meet-ups. And together build a network of Issue Killers.
Together with KIT Royal Tropical Institute we have created and launched the program. Within Issue Killers, we guide the participants in creating the campaign. We do this by giving training, organizing co-working sessions, hosting expert readings, and facilitating team building activities.
The first edition of Issue Killers will start on 21st of March 2022. The second edition will start September 2022.
