Goalmine provides a virtual two-day living-lab experience for transition year students across the Kerry region using a design driven innovation process.
Goalmine stimulates and ignites the innate problem solving, critical thinking, and innovative mind-set of the participants through applied entrepreneurial and creative learning practice. The programme equips students with entrepreneurial skills, which will prove important as the world seeks to rebuild post Covid19.
Taking place over two days per participating school, students use the UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030 which apply to all countries – including Ireland. For this reason, and with the cooperation of everyone, the Sustainable Development Goals have the potential to change everything – how we live and work, with whom we work, our views of the world, our vision, and values for the planet – today and into the future. They act as a guide and signpost for how we must think and how we must design. Goalmine is delivered to over 220 transition year students from 8 second level schools across Kerry.
