AUSTRALIA IN 2030: CREATING THE FUTURE WE WANT – ACOSS 2017

The 2017 ACOSS National Conference, in partnership with VCOSS, is the event where community leaders, policy and decision makers, practitioners, academics and people with lived experience come together to collectively tackle the issues driving poverty and inequality in Australia.  Leading thinkers and decision makers from the community, public, and private sectors will collaborate to identify challenges and workshop responses to move us towards a brighter and more equitable 2030.

Workshop: Digital innovation for social change

Hacktivism. Digital social innovation. UX design. Tech entrepreneurs. Digital has the power to help tackle wicked problems, and make our communities more accessible and inclusive. Technology is evolving at a rapid pace and offers a seemingly unlimited source of connecting, disrupting, influencing, advocating and servicing our communities. In this workshop, hear from leading digital innovators, ‘change makers’ and experts and get a taste of ‘hackathon’ collaboration to help design a digital solution.
