The ONE DAY Lab is the cornerstone session of ONE DAY: The Conference



Break silos
We talk to academics, civil society and the private sector to identify the problem areas of each issue.

Refining the expertise
We structure the information gained about the problem areas and turn these into specific challenges to use at the conference.

3. THE CONFERENCE: Coming up with the solutions!
You work in a group of six on a challenge of this issue supported by the experts. The aim is to come up with solutions in the form of social businesses, app/websites, and educational frameworks!

Our team evaluates the outcomes and develop an action plan on the implementation of the chosen ideas.

5. IMPLEMENTATION: This is our focus. Let’s get to work!
Conferences do not have to end in just inspiration and empowerment. This is what sets us apart! Our team will implement the best ideas along with regular progress reports or connect the ideas and research with existing entrepreneurship networks


ONE DAY: The Meetup

We believe that one must understand the challenges deeply before you can offer solutions.

ONE DAY: The Meetup is a series of talks that focus on understanding the systems behind certain social and environmental challenges. 

The outputs collected in these meetups are taken to ONE DAY: The Conference to innovate within these systems, which happens annually every March.

To keep up-to-date, learn more about social and environmental challenges, receive positive news, explore jobs in social businesses and more, join our group ONE DAY: The Community.
