The Social Enterprise World Forum is an international event for social enterprises from all over the world to come together, share wisdom, build networks and discuss how to create a more sustainable future.

The event attracts social enterprise practitioners, social entrepreneurs, policymakers, community leaders, investors, activists, academics and more from all across the globe. So if you are exploring, operating, funding or supporting social enterprises and the environment they operate in, join us in Christchurch, New Zealand on 27-29 September for SEWF 2017!

Social enterprise plays an important role in building healthy communities – they reduce poverty, build food systems, celebrate diversity, promote Indigenous culture, meet health needs, create employment opportunities for those with barriers, deliver community owned energy and address environmental issues, economic inequality and social exclusion.

If you concerned with similar issues, and are using business models to re-build communities, then SEWF 2017 is an opportunity to find wisdom, inspiration and support in your endeavours.

Together, we’ll use the Forum to provide the tools to enhance knowledge and skills, build a supportive public policy environment, and create a generous network of collaboration and sharing. We’ll examine transferable strategies, systems and models that have worked in the past, while also turning toward the future to explore emerging market opportunities in the long-term.

SEWF 2017 will take place across four central Christchurch venues. Plenary sessions, registration and catering will all take place at the Isaac Theatre Royal with The Piano, Christchurch Art Gallery – Te Puna o Waiwhetu and Christchurch City Council utilised for breakout sessions.

Sponsors for the event include… SAP, New Zealand Post, Kiwibank, Clemenger BBDO, Rātā Foundation, EY, Russell McVeagh, Pacific Business Trust, and He Kai Kei Aku Ringa.
