As the search for meaningful and purpose-driven work increases, technology transforms our lives, and our social and environmental challenges become ever more visible – there has never been a better time to back young New Zealanders to re-imagine, and create the future.
Festival for the Future is about celebrating what’s possible.
Social Value Aotearoa will be there as a part of Inspiring Stories’ Ideas and Skills workshops on Understanding Your Impact! We hope to see you there!
The Festival is run by Inspiring Stories, a social enterprise operating nationwide with the vision to see every young New Zealander unleash their potential to change the world. The first Festival ran in 2011 with a 100 attendees, and has grown every year since. The Founder & CEO of Inspiring Stories and the Festival, Guy Ryan, was awarded the Young New Zealander of the Year Award in 2015.
Fast-forward to 2016 – the Festival doubled in size with more than 900 people attending from across the nation, as well as delegates from Australia, India and the US. The buzz was incredible. It’s been called New Zealand’s most inspiring event, and received ‘world class’ reviews by seasoned conference-goers.
The action-packed weekend features a diverse range of inspiring speakers, hands-on workshops, performance, and entertainment. You’ll come away feeling inspired and optimistic about the future, having connected with all kinds of amazing people, and developed your ideas and skills for a better world.
