Tuesday 13 October
Reflections on crisis: The acceleration of change

Seismic shifts are happening in our sector, brought into sharp focus by the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ll explore what they mean for our work and open our hearts and heads to the opportunities that are now possible in a ‘new normal’.

Wednesday 14 October
Tools and tactics: Becoming an agent (vs victim) of change

Already, organisations are adapting to the new landscape to rise from the pandemic and economic downturn stronger than ever. Today’s sessions will give you new tools, tactics and practical models and leave you prepped for success!

Thursday 15 October
Digital innovation and social activism: The possibilities of people power

Join us for an exciting study of the new ways people are connecting, strategising, organising, mobilising and making a difference together. We will explore how disruption has accelerated progress towards digital communities and how to capitalise on a new era of digital engagement and social activism.

Friday 16 October
A better way: Building a new normal together
Fundraising is moving from a consumer focus towards a more sustainable model of support for the causes that drive our work. Looking ahead, we’ll consider the role of fundraisers and changemakers in creating a more just, equitable and healthy world.
