  Integration of Feminist Attributes into Transformative Experiential Learning Project of UNSDG 3/4/9/17
 
  Based on the study of Orser (2011) on feminist attributes expressed within entrepreneurial identity, the key attributes are :1) participative leadership, 2) action‐oriented, and 3) creative thinker/or 4) problem solver. Dr. Shirley Yeung, Head, School of Business, Gratia Christian College (GCC), Hong Kong has demonstrated these four feminist attributes in a recent transformative experiential learning project of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) 3/4/9/17 (well being/ quality of education with transferable skills/ innovations/ partnership).
 
  Yeung (2018) mentioned that it is time to implement UNPRME - purpose, values, research, methods, on-going dialogue and partnership to make impacts on Transferable Skills (UNSDG4) and Innovations (UNSDG9). The inter-disciplinary knowledge creation process  involves undergraduate students and teachers (Dr. Wong and Dr Yeung) of bachelor of business administration in service marketing and management programme and bachelor of psychology programme, Gratia Christian College, Hong Kong; Ms. Ye, Winner of the 1st Women Servant Leadership Award 2018 and project manager of Malan Lake, Inner Mongolia, China; and industry practitioners in Hong Kong for visualizing UNSDG 3, 4, 9, 17.  This kind of pioneer transformative experiential learning project is a good practice of sustainable development project with feminist attributes and value of commitment. The following steps have been proposed by Yeung (2018) to initiate, plan, implement, monitor and sustain UNSDGs and UNPRME related projects with feminist attributes:
  
1. Establish a project charter with project owners and stakeholders of different backgrounds to consider different perspectives for impacts (participative leadership);
   For example, Hong Kong runner - Andy Chik, who successfully completed his second North Pole's Marathon and colleagues of EGL Travel have been invited to join the experiential learning trip.

2. Communicate matters of mutual interest to relevant members and communities to fine-tune standards at an acceptable level (action-oriented); and 
   For example, a briefing of the experiential learning trip, Malan Lake has been conducted with students, teachers and industry practitioners with expected learning outcomes before the trip.

3. Engage subject experts in the evaluation criteria to improve their feasibility and practicality of the project (creative-thinker/ problem solver).
   For example, Ms. Ye, Winner of The 1st Woman Servant Leadership Award, 2018 has been invited to share her valuable project management experience of the desert. 

"When comparing the base environment (with trees, insects, birds...) in Malan Lake with photos taken in past few years and trying to plant 1-2 trees in the desert, the great effort of the staff is heart-felt.  
 Teachers of BBA in Service Marketing Management and Psychology Programmes, Gratia Christian College have shown a deep commitment of teaching to the students. Tremendous effort and time are needed to restore a peaceful environment."

This kind of transformative inter-disciplinary learning trip demonstrates a disruptive way of learning:  
- Learning is of no boundary; 
- Learning is to challenge comfort zone;  
- Learning is to appreciate the nature with calmness and a peace of mind; and- Learning is to develop commitment, resilience skills and talents for the future.
