Event description

Description

Social Innovators/SOIN is a Meetup dedicated to the world of design & innovation for social change. This will be a platform to share ideas, knowledge and experiences, as well as submitting ideas for talks and meeting like minded people. I want to bring the world of design & innovation together, from physical products to the digital world and services which ultimately make the world a better place for vulnerable people.

For our first Meetup we have an exciting line up of speakers talking about their experiences across child protection, genfriends and tackling HIV in Africa.

Please note; all proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to chosen charity; caracare.org.au - helping children overcome trauma.

The first Meetup of 'SOIN' also comes to you with thanks to our sponsor; IDE Group.
