Too many Problems, so little solution (SuperPost)

English

The world is riddled with problems such as climate change, pollution, poverty, wars, and etc. These problems are currently unresolved and will most likely stay as is for longer periods of time. Although that is case, here are few examples of problems which can be addressed at a shorter period of time, and will help lessen the burden of the aforementioned problems.

ABSTRACT: Social Entrepreneurship + Regional Development

This paper demonstrates how it is possible for social entrepreneurship to play a key role in rural development. It draws links between social entrepreneurs, their work, their role in sustainable development, and how it relates to rural development. My findings suggest that social entrepreneurship can be achieved if we consider catering to the basic needs of individuals in the society first. In addition, we must find a development model that works today and does not impede, but rather create, better opportunities for tomorrow.

Project - Rebranding of a Sustainable Business - The Lotus House

We are students in the Hotel and Restaurant Management Program at College Lafleche. Throughout our course "Business English 2" we have completed 3 professional workshops wherein we evlauated real businesses and then came up with real suggesttions and solutions which we might offer them if they were our clients.

For this 4th workshop, our task was to evaluate the Lotus House, which is a not-for-profit guesthouse which operates in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. This guesthouse uses its profits to support an orphanage, and in turn, the orphans have the opportunity to learn about the tourism/hospitality industry so that when they are 18 years old, they will have a better chance of finding a good job. Mongolia is set to become a major tourist destination, and we were excited to work on this project because The lotus House is a strong example of a sustainable business.

Our task was to research the company and produce the following documents:

Documents:
1. A rebranding package: logo, mission statement, slogan(s) and anything else that you may think useful.
2. A list of potential parent companies and a brief description of why they may be interested, and in which capacity they may be interested (buy/sponsor/partner). This part must be as realistic as possible and include real statistics and facts.
3. A SWOT analysis for 1 of those potential partners
4. A slideshow that presents the basic concept, key details, and major advantages which will incentivize the parent company to buy/sponsor/partner with your charitable client.
5. A second slideshow which illustrates the improvements, upgrades, technology, new concepts, new product offerings that the investor can make possible.

Here is our work so far:

Sustainable tour Project - The Middle East

Here is the first step which I have taken towards the creation of a sustainable tour of the Middle East.  This is an informative pamphlet which would be given to prospective tourists (before their trip) so that they can be better informed about sustainable practices.  The next step will be to publish the full 7-day itinerary of the tour that I am creating, along with the full pre-trip briefing that the travellers will receive before embarking.

Fair Trade Campus- Action Research Project

We decided to create a Fairtrade Campus because we want to educate and create awareness on fair trade commerce. Fairtrade products ameliorate the agricultural workers’ conditions in developing countries. They do not make enough profits to have social benefits. Because of climate change, their jobs are not safe and they experience instability: they are at the mercy of the climate and of the market. When buying Fairtrade, we support a community of workers who can democratically optimise the worker’s benefits which brings them safety.
