Community Forum 2020 aims to showcase initiatives that have the potential to unlock the power of community organisations and informal groups. This is an opportunity for us to get to know one another better, find out what we care about and the ideas that energise us, and begin to figure out what are worthy things we could be doing together. 

On the 11th of November 2020, we ventured into the realm of Social Innovation with our line-up of speakers from various social enterprise and non-profit organisations. Learn more about how they define social innovation and how they have pushed their organisations to greater heights with the graphic and video recording of the session below!
