An experiential learning platform allowing the participants to engage in an international workshop environment comprising live experiences, challenges and prototyping; teamwork based innovation challenges; entrepreneurial mentoring and inspirational talks presented by visionary entrepreneurs, policy makers, innovators and opinion leaders. The platform is thus identified by three distinct training “experiences”: inspiration, aspiration and perspiration.

Inspiration – To combine learning and innovation to get a view of the future, through the eyes of big visionaries and experts.
Aspiration – To unlock your potential by making real your ideas at the side of the doers.
Action – To convert your ideas into action and make a transformation in the communities in which you are part of cross-curricular “Food Shoot.”
