An Essential Paradigm Shift
The vision of the Global Cooperative Synergy Group is to develop in young people the ability and the commitment to think globally and act locally to solve STEM and social problems through Real Engagement in Active Problem Solving (REAPS).

Creativity is defined as the ability and willingness to use knowledge in new ways, generate new and novel ideas or associations between existing concepts. Innovation is defined as the ability and willingness to implement knowledge, ideas, or concepts in a specific context with the intention of producing outcomes that are original, useful, appropriate, and actionable. Entrepreneurs are those who have the ability and willingness to identify and capture opportunities for useful and actionable outcomes in which a need can be satisfied, value can be created, or a solution can be found for an intractable problem (Dino, 2017).
