The Social Impact Festival
We believe that there are so many individuals and organisations who are deeply committed to caring for their place and the people in it. We see these people working in business, government, the community sector, in health and education, Indigenous business and enterprise, unions, social enterprises, and collaborations. Through their conversations, collaborations, their quest for knowledge, actions big and small, they are making a difference every day. It is time that we recognise this work that is happening, that we celebrate it, support it, amplify and accelerate it, and continue to grow it so we can collectively create a place that we are proud to live in. Together we can create the societal impact we want to see. Make change matter.
