This September, Social Enterprise World Forum C.I.C. (SEWF) is going virtual to hold their biggest event to date. SEWF Digital will champion the potential of social enterprises – small and large, rural and urban – to bring about inclusive and sustainable economic development. The week-long programme will feature keynotes and plenaries from three different world zones with live Q&A, online networking, and partner-organised sessions. Participants will also be able to self-organise content during the opening two days. Speakers will include leading social entrepreneurs and changemakers from across the world with over 3,000 participants from over 50 countries.
SEWF Digital event week features three parts:
• Monday/Tuesday focuses on connecting and learning through masterclasses, webinars, group discussion, specialist sessions, and self-created content (content nomination for registered participants is open from 1-31 July – details to follow).
• Wednesday/Thursday room partitions come down (virtually) with a series of keynote addresses and plenaries that will inspire and encourage action.
• Friday will focus on reflection and next steps as the event closes.
Each day the programme will start in Oceania/East Asia moving west to Africa/Europe/Asia and finishing in North, Central and South America. This means that no matter where you are in the world you can access live content and networking during your day. Content will also be recorded so that you can access it at any time up until September 2021.
