About Social Capital New Zealand (SOCANZ):
2012 is a time when we are all seeking to create something new from the old and tired ways of approaching the tough problems of today. The conditions of the world economy, international trade, climate change and increasing discrepancy between rich and poor invite us all, as NZ citizens to reach for new solutions, new ways of thinking and working together to create better lives for all New Zealanders. These new initiatives and approaches really work, to make things happen in a better way.

Doing Real Good is a conference designed to bring together New Zealanders interested in working with other New Zealanders, from outside our usual communities, to think together about how we will create the NZ that we want to live in. A society that uses the best of business and community thinking, the best of government resources and frameworks and the best of the market to leverage to the best for every NZ citizen.

This is a conference where the key note sessions will combine three pithy crisp talks from exciting leading-edge thinkers with a panel that will allow us to get a close up feel for the way people from different sectors approach strategic issues of our time.

Across the 2 days every participant will have an opportunity to attend four workshops. The workshops are organised in tracks. You can create a focussed and deep experience by attending all the workshops in one track or a broad and diverse experience by hopping across the tracks.

The audience:
This conference is unique in that it is designed to be a cross sector experience. Expect to meet people from across capital, philanthropy, community, corporate, education, government, SME’s, and local government sectors. Add value to your thinking about how we do real good in your own area of interest

The programme
In this year of more welfare reform how do we shift our thinking to a society that does good well?
How do we provide a whole range of tools that have nothing to do with welfare but rather invites us to think about a society that is thriving, generative and way beyond thinking it is dependent on welfare for wellbeing?

Over the past three years business entrepreneurs, social entrepreneurs, community organisations, corporations and government have been testing out new ideas around social business, social capital, measuring social impact and succeeding in starting up and commercialising social enterprise. At this conference you can immerse yourself in the experiences, the lessons, the achievements and the opportunities of this emerging national and international market place.
