Those that work within the social and / or environmental space are familiar with the myriad of events that take place in the aim of exploring topics at the forefront of the current agenda as well as promising the age old opportunity of 'networking'.
The Social Good Summit took place in Sydney recently and I volunteered in my capacity as an Alumni member of the Global Shapers community. The summit provided a platform to bring together Government, Organisations, NFP / NGO, Academia around catalysing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's).
In my opinion, the SDG's are incredibly powerful as they provide a framework that allows all parties to collaborate around - a clear direction in an industry that could do with some standardisation.
The turn-out was excellent and the Sydney Global Shaper team really did their part with over 10 members putting up their hand to volunteer. Josh Ross, one of the Founding members of the Humanitix team was on-site ensuring that ticketing went smoothly too.
