FestivalForGood Conversations: A Sharing of Minds

Description
Conversations is a series of talks and panel discussion on topics regarding the social enterprise sector, social impact, and doing good in Singapore. We hope to spread awareness about social enterprises and social issues in Singapore, as well as engage members of public in meaningful discussions about how we can make Singapore a better place for all.

Session #1: Food, Fashion and Far, Far Away – the Socially Conscious Consumer

2:00pm – 4:00pm


“Conscious consumerism” is becoming a new catchphrase as globalization brings cheaper, more diverse goods to our doorsteps and consumers become more socially aware of the consequences and impact that their lifestyle choices have.

Starting with a fashion show by Singapore Fashion Runway, showcasing products from a range of social enterprises, step back and think - what exactly are we spending our money on, and what kind of impact are we creating?


Session #2: Business Sustainability – Serve Others, Do Good, and Bring on the Joy
5pm - 6pm


The social enterprise sector in Singapore is growing faster than ever before, as more companies drive their business while integrating a social mission into their model. However, as social enterprises endeavor to serve others while making money, these questions remain: how are businesses moving into the social space?

Session #3 - Innovating with Art, Technology and Design for Good
6pm- 7pm


Riding on the technology revolution, Singapore launched the Smart Nation initiative in 2014. 3 years on, how has technology and design enabled positive change in Singapore’s society? In addition, how has social enterprises integrated elements of technology and design into their services and operations, and capitalized on this to make their social cause even greater?
