Yonsei UIC Students Tackle Social Issues in Tanzania with Design Thinking
Twenty-five Yonsei students and faculty embarked to Tanzania to participate in the Design Factory Korea Social Impact Boot Camp held at Nelson Mandela African Institution of Science and Technology last summer. Themed “Design Thinking for Social Innovation,” the four-day workshop aimed to create an opportunity to become familiarized with the design thinking process to tackle social issues in a practical manner.
Taking Small Actions to Initiate Big Social Impact
The international community is currently facing an alarming number of environmental concerns, and a group of Yonsei students has teamed up to tackle issues found in everyday life, beginning right on campus. Student-led team CINDERLIER is committed to doing their part to preserve the environment by collecting and recycling cigarette butts on campus.
Taking Safety to the Next Level with Smart Robots
A startup led by a Yonsei alumnus is currently taking public safety and security to the next level with its autonomous robots. 'Dogu-gonggan' is developing a robot which patrols around large areas that are difficult for people to access such as disaster areas or crime-prone neighborhoods and collects and transfers the real-time data to a control center.
