Design for Impact is bringing together 300 high-level practitioners on 15 October in Vienna in order to redefine the educational, political, and economic systems, and beyond. Although an “invitation-only” event, you still have the chance to apply for one of the 50 open slots. You can do so here by 1 October.
“The goal of the event is to transform society’s systems through projects and to enable the people behind these projects to connect and increase their impact by advancing their understanding and taking collective action,” Alexis Eremia, co-founder of Impact Hub Vienna and agenda manager of Design for Impact, told inventures.eu. The discussions will revolve around topics like educational transformation, impact investment, finding new ways of working together, and more. The gathering will be hosted by MAK in Vienna.
Who can join
The organising team are targeting a very specific yet diverse pool of participants. “[Design for Impact] is a practitioners-only event,” said Eremia. “We are therefore looking for experienced practitioners, with a story to tell and a taste for collaboration. We are also looking for a diverse crowd and hoping to have applications from different industries.” In order to join the event, participants will need to apply online and pay a 100€ +VAT registration fee.
The goal of the Design for Impact is tohave practitioners come together and learn about (and from) best practices, discuss ideas and be able to apply those when they return to their organisations. “We believe that impact cannot happen in isolation. It requires collective action. With Design For Impact we would like to give every practitioner a feeling of what happens when we work together,” said Eremia. Thomas Vellacot, Charly Kleissner, Allan Webber, Johanna Lair are just few of the confirmed guest speakers.
