Note:

  • Contribution to society is the final goal of education. By creating long-lasting value, each one of us can become an agent of societal change in our own unique way. This feature enables you to begin contributing to society in a systematic way.
  • There are four major practices, along with a set of think triggers (a,b,c). These triggers help open up potential contributions to society. The last section is a tool which helps you map out the various zones of contribution that you operate in, in your day-to-day life, and identify the specific contributions you could make in each zone.
