THE Social Good Summit Australia is a one-day conference examining the impact of social good initiatives around the world.
Held on October 10, 2015 at the University of Sydney, the Social Good Summit Australia unites a dynamic community of leaders from Not-for-Profits, Corporations, Government, Universities and Industry bodies as well as grassroots contributors to discuss solutions for the greatest challenges of our time.
The first Australian Summit will follow the New York Social Good Summit, which is held every year since 2010 to coincide with and expand the conversations of the September meeting of the United Nations General Assembly.
Our summit is part of a global effort to drive social change and to launch the 17 Sustainable Development Goals that were set by UN as a target for the next 15 years (2015-2030). On September 25, during the UN General Assembly, 193 world leaders will commit to achieve those goals.
Our theme, #2030NOWAU, asks the question, “What type of world do I want to live in by the year 2030?” During the Social Good Summit held in more than 80 countries, global citizens from around the world unite to unlock the potential of individuals.
The Australian Social Good Summit has three main objectives:
1. Launch and create awareness of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
2. Inspire individuals to make a difference by show casing stories of individuals that use their skills to do social good.
3. Explore the power of collaboration when representatives from government, corporations, not for profit, associations and grassroots contributors come together to identify and implement solutions for complex problems.

“The Summit here will look at the kind of world we want to be living in by the year 2030, and the role that individuals can play in a better 2030,” said the University of Sydney Business School’s Associate Professor Ranjit Voola.
“We will bring together representatives from not-for-profits, corporations and government, as well as grass-root contributors that are using their skills for social good so we can inspire others to make a difference,” added Catia Davim, Convener Social Good Summit Australia.
