Event description

Learn. Innovate. Connect.

Unbound and Global Ideas in partnership with LaunchVic and RMIT University are proud to present Intersect 2019, a celebration of social innovation and entrepreneurship — bringing together Australia’s leading and emerging innovators in an engaging day of big ideas!

We welcome curious thinkers, entrepreneurs, global citizens, health workers, students and professionals to a conference like no other. With an exceptional line-up of facilitators, workshops and discussions, the event offers a unique opportunity to learn from and create networks with remarkable change-makers who call Melbourne home.

Breaking the mould of traditional conferences, this forum is all about DOING, rather than being another talk-fest. Participants will have access to loads of hands-on, practice-based workshops specifically tailored to the needs and skills of people in the room - in addition to engaging debates, storytelling sessions and networking opportunities.

This event celebrates global diversity, and will showcase and support people from around the world innovating here in Victoria. Migrants. Refugees. Global Innovators.

This year we will feature an Unconference style session where we hand the facilitation over to you - the experts in the room. Self-nominated participants will be invited to lead a mini-workshop to share their own ideas, knowledge and experiences with other participants. Do you have a unique workshop you’d like to offer, or an exciting idea you want build a movement around? Get in touch with the organisers and we can make it happen.

There will then be four diverse conversation streams throughout the day for attendees to check in and participate. This year Global Ideas will bring a specific health focus and showcase organisations making a big impact both on health locally and internationally. This is one not to be missed!


Session themes and topics include:

> Global Innovators-Stories from the Field

> Healthier Lives and Communities

> Business for Good-Women Entrepreneurs

> Innovation Unconference-You Take the Lead

> Design Sprint

> Humanitarian Action

> Leadership and Team Elevation

> Ideas to Impact


Delicious plant based catering with GF options will be provided by Lentil As Anything.

This event is proudly supported by LaunchVic and RMIT University.
