IDEA Generators Conference

Issachar Fund, Idea Fund and Templeton Religion Trust

In Chicago, May 2016, a group of talented Muslim and Christian individuals committed to generating positive social change came together in teams to design projects related to environmental sustainability in North American college campuses and campus communities through an interfaith partnership. With the guidance of a professional team of advisors, each group went through a process of ideation, project selection, project design and pitch practice, culminating with a presentation of their project to a group of judges and their peers.
