Social Innovation Summit


Each year, Leave No One Behind kicks off with a Social Innovation Summit (via Zoom). It is open to all eligible students and alumni - not just those looking to enter the competition. It's a unique opportunity to learn about sustainable development and social business, and a great starting point for those wondering if the Leave No One Behind program is for them. With no obligation to sign up, bring along your friends for an energising and inspiring introduction to the world of social business.

The Summit will provide an introduction to key concepts, including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and social business, and will also begin matchmaking teams.

There will be presentations by industry experts, as well as some hands-on teamwork to spark new ideas and build your skills. Come with your passion and ideas – and leave with new friends, collaborators and practical tools to get started.

The Summit is held online via Zoom. Further details will be emailed to attendees.
