DO DAY 2019 – SHE WINS. WE WIN.
CO-CREATE SOLUTIONS TO ELEVATE WOMEN
At The DO School, we believe that in just one day individuals and communities can come together and make a tangible difference towards global challenges – no matter how daunting. That’s why we created DO Day: our annual international day of DOing on the 18th of October. DO Day calls on Purposeful DOers around the world to come together and co-create solutions to some of the world’s most pressing issues.
