Find out more about the Social Enterprise World Forum 2017 in Christchurch, including the line-up of speakers.

The theme for SEWF 2017 is “Ka koroki te manu – Creating our tomorrow”. This is an invitation to create a global legacy of positive change and to take an active role in shaping the world’s future. Just as the first birdsong welcomes the potential of tomorrow, SEWF 2017 is a chance to come together and explore the endless possibility in ours.

Social enterprise plays an important role in building healthy communities - they reduce poverty, build food systems, celebrate diversity, promote Indigenous culture, meet health needs, create employment opportunities for those with barriers, deliver community owned energy and address environmental issues, economic inequality and social exclusion. If you concerned with similar issues, and are using business models to re-build communities, then SEWF 2017 is an opportunity to find wisdom, inspiration and support in your endeavours.

Explore the Social Enterprises of Christchurch

There will be opportunities to meet the innovative people of Christchurch and experience their work first hand in the lead up to the Forum. Some fantastic local tours have been organised that'll allow you to journey through the social enterprises of Christchurch, among others the Trade Aid chocolate factory and Kilmarnock Enterprises.
