🤔 Reflection question
After learning about how to empathize with the people affected by your SDG’s social issue, how you might apply empathy to working with the members on your CTN Innovation Team?
Working with the members of my CTN Innovation Team would require using empathy, which would entail carefully listening to their viewpoints, worries, and suggestions for sustainable urban development. We can collectively come up with more thorough and effective answers if we foster a culture where team members feel respected and heard. In the same way that I've learned to put myself in the position of those who are affected by urban challenges, I would work to understand my coworkers' perspectives, promoting open communication and fostering a collaborative environment where diverse perspectives contribute to creative solutions that genuinely address SDG 11's objectives.
The #ChangeTheNow is a community of global Changemakers, working together to innovate on the positive change we need to see in our communities for 2030 and beyond!
