Febe was part of the team from UNSW Sydney that won the Cornell University’s International Global Health Case Study Competition this year.
“Winning this competition was wonderful. It really taught me that cross-sectoral collaboration and systemic thinking are very important in addressing large societal problems. Our team members all had different expertise and I think that is the key to this approach.”
Febe is an international student from Indonesia who is currently studying the UNSW Master of Commerce specialisation in Global Sustainability and Social Enterprise taught by the Centre for Social Impact.
“The course has helped me apply systemic thinking in approaching and addressing complex problems. It prevents me from taking any ‘silver bullet’ solution that seems to be effective but apparently it only cures the symptoms and not the root cause of the problem, hence is not sustainable. It also assists me in mapping relevant stakeholders whom I need to collaborate with to ensure and maximise the delivery of intended impacts.”
