GlobalResolve is a social entrepreneurship program at Arizona State University (ASU) in the College of Technology and Innovation (CTI), whose goal is to create sustainable communities by developing technology solutions to address global poverty and subsequently build community ventures around the solutions, therefore encouraging local economic development.

PROJECT TEAMS
Each semester undergraduate and graduate students across all ASU disciplines enroll in on of several project-based GlobalResolve courses; students are provided academic instruction on designing solutions for the developing world, as well as forming project teams to address a community-identified problem for hands-on experience. Projects are based in a variety of communities – from Glendale, Arizona to the Navajo Nation to villages around the globe. Working cohesively with community members, students develop technologies or products that help solve concerns such as clean water, waste management, energy, health, education, etc.

A team consists of 3-4 students, ASU faculty advisors, an Arizona community mentor, and a community partner. Teams will work through all stages of the project development – from understanding the community through research to designing solutions to monitoring and long term sustainability. Projects will continue, as needed, beyond each semester with new students replacing former team members, thus creating a long-term sustainable solution.
Aprotechghana and Global resolve seems to share a common interest in sustainable development.
