The Global Scholars Program is a international service learning project. We partnered with two Australian social enterprises to study their business models and platforms which helps the improvement of the Great Barrier Reef. This was an opportunity to actively address socio-economic and environmental issues with consultancy work. We used mixed methods research doing observations, survey, semi-structured interviews and market archival research.
