Event Description

Know any Social Innovators under 30? Help spread the word and invite them to the Young Social Innovators Event Series, or come out and support!


A Lightning Pitch Event on March 6th will feature 90 second presentations from some of the most exciting social good initiatives from under 30's in BC (and cash prizes!), and a relaxed environment to network with a community of

emerging and established social change leaders, including members of the BC Advisory Council on Social Entrepreneurship.


On March 10th the Council is hosting a follow-up Speak Up! mini-conference for youth and youth-serving organizations to generate more specific recommendations and feedback based on the Advisory Councils draft report (see below).


Information and registration links here:

Speak Up! (mini-conference) (March 10th - free)


Your Feedback is Needed - The BC Advisory Council on Social Entrepreneurship is about to present recommendations to the BC government on advancing social innovation in the province, and wants to hear from young social innovators

before they finalize their report. Their draft report can be found here. Please share your thoughts at the following link:
