Skip to 0 minutes and 12 seconds Here at the University of Bristol, we believe in the power of education to transform lives. Together with our three Bristol Futures open courses on Innovation and Enterprise, Global Citizenship, and Sustainable Futures, each with an emphasis on personal development, we’ll help you to think about your life differently and how you engage with the world around you. Innovation and Enterprise is all about ideas. We all have ideas, so why are some good and why do some have more impact than others? This course will help you to not only create better ideas but help you to make your ideas a reality. In Global Citizenship we’ll be tackling challenging global topics including Religion, Technology, Climate Change and Equality.

Skip to 0 minutes and 55 seconds Accompanied by experts in their fields, all in pursuit of exploring what it might mean to be a Global Citizen. And in Sustainable Futures, we will explore and discover what motivates you, what gives you purpose and in what ways you can influence the world around you, with advice and case studies on topics ranging from mental wellbeing to homelessness and microplastics. Collectively, the courses will teach you to be more creative, impactful, and act on global issues around you, all with a sense of happiness, fulfilment and wellbeing to help you unleash your potential.

The Unleash Your Potential program consists of three online courses that look at some of the big challenges the world is facing today.

Each course focusses on a key issue: sustainability; global citizenship; and innovation and enterprise.

At the end of the program, you’ll understand some of the social, economic and development issues facing the world today, and how you can take action to address them, on a local and global scale.

You will also practice and develop key skills to help engage with the challenges and opportunities life brings, both within and beyond the workplace.
