Social Innovation Leadership: From Thought to Action

The theme of the fourth annual Surrey Social Innovation Summit, September 5 and 6 at Surrey City Hall, puts special emphasis on the hands-on learning experiences many attendees at last year’s summit suggested for 2018. Mark these dates in your calendar with more information to come!

Call for Workshops

As we work to finalize this year’s program, we know our attendees want to learn more about the practical tools, techniques and processes they can use to take their social innovation ideas off the table, and turn them into reality.

The Surrey Social Innovation Summit invites proposals for two or three session workshop topics that will provide attendees with hands-on, experiential opportunities to further develop the skills they need to be successful.

Social innovation workshop proposals that focus on youth, indigenous peoples, social innovation labs, or an exciting and emerging area of social innovation practice, will be considered.

Each Workshop proposal must include the following:

  • Workshop title
  • A brief description (up to one page) of the technical issues that the workshop will focus on
  • The names, addresses, and short bios of the organizers
  • The planned format of the workshop, including a strategy to facilitate interaction, engagement and learning by the participants
  • On-site technical or set-up requirements

Proposal submission: April 13, 2018
Notification of proposal acceptance: April 27, 2018
