What is social innovation and why does it matter?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll be aware our society is facing unprecedented social and environmental challenges. In recognition of this the United Nations developed the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  There are 17 goals, adopted globally, to end poverty, protect our planet and ensure prosperity by 2030.

For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: government, the private sector, not for profits and our wider community.

If you are in business, central or local government, an investor, a non for profit community leader, an entrepreneur, come and gain more awareness of social innovation and its intentions, how to foster and enable it locally in order to address some of the big issues our world is facing.

This event will discuss Social Innovation and its relevance for Tauranga Moana and it will:

  • Unpack social innovation and its potential to transform our communities.
  • Bring together experts and practitioners already tackling tough issues and delivering positive social change to share how they approached getting started and what they are doing to grow their impact.
  • Provide practical tools to get you started.
