Abstract or Description:

GoGlobal is a project run in the first year of the Innovation Design Engineering Masters programme. Students are sent for 3-4 weeks to work abroad together with local people on a project typically with a social innovation theme. In 2016 over 40 student went to Cape Town, South Africa to work with local entrepreneurs in the townships of the city. For the first time in GoGlobal history, 2016 saw a phase 2 follow up trip. The purpose was to assess the impact 6 months after the initial projects with the 12 entrepreneurs in Cape Town. Three returning students from IDE and two local Capetonians, together with the support of the RCA and Reciprocity, visited and interviewed all 12 entrepreneurs to assess the impact of the projects undertaken. The mission was to devise a method of evaluating the impact based on the adoption and relevance of the solutions proposed. In addition to this, special considerations were made when evaluating external factors that may have effected individuals and their businesses. Understanding the impact and relevance of the work done over an intensive 3 week project is a critical learning outcome for the GoGlobal module as a whole moving forward. The team in Cape Town was Reto Togni, Maya Pindeus, Andrew Slack, Charlotte Slingsby and Danielle Ehrlich.
