The DO School is an educational institution with a campus in Hamburg, Germany and New York City, United States.
The School provides one-year educational training programs for young social entrepreneurs from around the world. It holds programs centred on a wide variety of themes including environmental sustainability and peace-building.
The DO School was founded by Florian Hoffmann, who is also the co-founder of the Dekeyser & Friends Foundation. The DO School grew out of a previous fellowship program, the D&F Academy.
Do school offers a fantastic fellowship for talented social entrepreneurs to solve the PACKAGING CHALLENGE set by H&M to create an innovative packaging system for one of their product lines.

Fellows then spend 10 months in their home countries starting up their venture, supported by the DO School online course to create real social impact.
