Event description

What is distinct about the Australian social enterprise sector? What can we share with the world?

What ideas and issues would we like the Social Enterprise World Forum, hosted in Brisbane in 2022 to explore? 

What would strengthen and grow our sector and scale our impact?

In the lead up to the 2022 Social Enterprise World Forum hosted in Brisbane late next year, we will endeavour to facilitate conversations around these questions and more in the much anticipated Unconference, hosted by our friends at Digital Storytellers

The Social Enterprise Unconference 2021 is proudly supported by the Victoria GovernmentWhite Box Enterprises, Social Enterprise World Forum, Social Traders and the Alliance of Social Enterprise Networks Australia (ASENA).

What is an Unconference?

In the Unconference format, no central figure writes the agenda. Instead, we crowdsource the agenda and participants choose what conversations they wish to create or join. What this means is that:

  • You have the ability to contribute in a tangible and intentional way
  • You have the opportunity to collaborate with those in the sector who are passionate about solving the same social or environmental issue
  • You can Chair a discussion on current developments, opportunities and/or challenges in your field and/or
  • You can lead a workshop, or attend one!

Essentially, an Unconference is something you design. There is no exclusive table of people sitting behind a dark curtain calling the shots. You do. What do you need? What will you find valuable? 

How will the day run?

You will be able to jump in and out of sessions as per the agenda on the Unconference website, so don’t stress if you can’t make it for the whole day! 

How will the agenda work? 

As the agenda of an Unconference is crowdsourced, attendees who want to facilitate conversation around a particular issue will need to submit session topics ahead of time so we can ensure the tech experience is smooth. This might be something like:

  • How can employment-based social enterprises collaborate more effectively to improve the outcomes of people in need?
  • Navigating the social enterprise ecosystem: who are the players, how do I get involved, where is it heading?
  • How state-based social enterprise councils can better support social enterprise

On the 12th of July, submissions will close.

On the 19th of July, the final agenda will be released here (don’t worry, we’ll let you know when it’s up). On the day of the event, you’ll be able to access each of the session’s Zoom links through that link too. 

What’s next?

Register now! We can only represent the voice of the sector if the sector shows up and contributes. This event is free to reduce barriers to entry and will be hosted online. If you have any questions, please forward them to:
