Exploring Change through Social Enterprise LIMITED
Feedback form is now closed.
Limited Capacity seats available

How do you create change in a country that is 1.33 billion strong, with over 2000 ethnic groups when you can't bank on the government for support? Can a 21-year-old drive change? Join us in exploring how social enterprise can spread change through existing systems virally, yet effectively. Let's talk about how we can make business beautiful. Let's talk about how community and culture can support you in this. We will use simple theatre and role-play to explore cultural barriers and catalysts for nature connection in a facilitated open forum. Speaker Janani Eswar will share highlights from ways in which the organization she leads, Growing in Nature, has explored these strategies in India followed by a world cafe-style dialogue and idea-building session.

Max Capacity: 20
