Building Innovation Capacity

Building Innovation Capacity

Friday, 5 March

8.30am - 10.00am
FREE 90 minute Online Workshop

Wherever you are in community, sometimes it feels like we are unable to significantly impact the challenges that limit people.

In spite of the dedication and ingenuity of our carers and not-for-profit organisations, increases in government funding or even targeted messaging and education programmes - we know that new solutions are required and that the results that are urgently needed cannot and will not be found by simply making incremental changes to our current approaches. The breakthroughs we need require new approaches.

This webinar aims to support the conditions where innovation becomes an imperative to effectively address the most significant issues affecting your community. The complex nature of the most intractable issues requires the wisdom and insights from multiple sectors, working together, in order to generate measurable and lasting changes.

This is an interactive exploration of what has worked, what is working for you now and an opportunity to meet with other potential partners in your community innovation.

1. An introduction to Community Innovation and the Essential Elements for Success.
2. Focusing on Building the Right Infrastructure and Mindset
