Catalysing Societal Wellbeing: Launch of Centre for Social Impact UWA Public Engagement Program : Featuring a public lecture by international guest Marian Goodman, plus introduction of 2018 engagement activities Other events...
You are invited to join Professor Paul Flatau, Director of the Centre for Social Impact UWA (CSI UWA) and the CSI UWA team for the launch of our exciting public engagement program and an inspiring presentation by international innovation lab facilitator Marian Goodman.

In 2018, CSI UWA together with our partners will be driving a number of new exciting activities which we hope will advance a thriving and inclusive Western Australia.

Throughout 2018, we will be extending a number of activities that seek to drive the change we wish to see. Our well loved annual Social Impact Festival (7-20 July) will be ramped up, we will be launching several more Impact Labs (ongoing processes to co-create long lasting change around social issues), as well as beginning a range other initiatives including professional development programs, the ELIAS leadership program as much more.

Come and hear our plans; we would love you to join us and be part of the process.

We believe that we have everything we need in Western Australia to shape the future we wish to see. It is about us forming stronger networks and making visible the great work that is already happening, as well as participating in meaningful processes that support us to realise the future we wish to live in. And what is that future? It's a future where all humans and their places can flourish in a society characterised by wellbeing.

Join us as we explore the concept of Catalysing Societal Wellbeing in this event and throughout the rest of our public engagement program.
