Social Innovation Sydney BarCamps are a great way for people to meet and build relationships with other change makers. However, the conversations that happen at the Social Innovation BarCamps don’t always turn into concrete action.

Over two days we’ll have experts share the essential concepts and skills you need to bring your idea to life. For example:
What outcomes can you expect from Social Innovation Startup Camp?

It is amazing what you can achieve in the space of 2 days and how much knowledge that you can take away.
