Event description: 

Meet two of the Yale Greenberg World Fellows - Joy Olivier from South Africa and ElsaMarie DSilva from India. They will share their work on education and prevention of sexual violence in their countries. Following that, they will engage high school students in a design thinking exercise to identify problems that students face in their daily commute and routine and brainstorm solutions that can be implemented at the local level. The aim is to introduce new perspectives and problem solving methodology to students and help them think through community based projects that they may decide to take up to address a problem.
