ACFID Conference 2017: Transformational Change and Development (1 - 2 Nov 2017)

The Australian Council for International Development (ACFID) are holding their national conference in Melbourne from 1-2 November 2-17.

The overall theme of the conference this year is Transformational Change and Development – an exploration of how the Australian Development and humanitarian sector can better understand, and drive, transformational change. In doing so, the focus is on three domains of change:

Engage – Action and Advocacy for Change
Create – Transformational Organisations for Change
Lead – Transformational Leadership for Sustainable Development.

The Conference will be about enabling an understanding of, and connection to, social movements driving significant change, here and abroad; surfacing and sharing good practice against these domains of change; re-engaging with concepts of thinking and working politically, particularly from an activist/advocacy perspective; and also, thinking about what we need to do now, to make change happen – providing a platform for Conference participants to commit and take action.

Registration closes on Monday 23 October 2017
