Perth SOUP: Education & Employment
Date and Time
Spread the word! Perth SOUP is back with our education & employment themed event in 2019! A community-based micro-funding event assisting to improve social impact in our local community.
Perth SOUP is a micro-funding pitch night, that seeks to support social impact projects within our local community. Perth SOUP is one of the projects of Global Shapers Perth, part of the Global Shapers Community and an initiative of the World Economic Forum.
There will be 3 great ideas pitched over the evening, and the audience will vote for the winner. The accumulated entrance fee for the event will be granted to the winner to help their project grow and make a meaningful impact.
This round of Perth SOUP focuses on the theme of education and employment that aligns with the SDG Goal 4 Quality Education and Goal 10 Reduced Inequalities. You will be hearing from projects that are working towards a world where all people have access to quality education and opportunities to utilise 21st century skills for good.
An added feature of our special education & employment themed evening includes an opening by Angel Chen, Curator of Global Shapers Perth, keynote by Rebecca Loftus, Program Director of Fogarty EDfutures and a meet & greet with one of our Global Shaper, Daniel Shaw, who works as the HASS teacher at Shenton College and has launched numerous entrepreneur projects to equip students to be fit for the workforce.
We are also committed to supporting local sustainable suppliers from our choice of venue at Perth City Farm, to our food and drinks selection from Taste Budds Cooking Studio, to resuable cutlery to the use of the first non profit ticketing platform, Humanitix.
So, support your local community and help fund positive change today!
The plan for the evening:
- Meet awesome people
- Eat delicious food
- Vote for an impactful project
- Be proud of your city
PS We would like to encourage sustainability and encourage you to bring your own keep cup & picnic rug/ cushion to the event.
