Attending this event?
Social Value Canada is convening the September 28-29 gatherings of #SVM2020: People, Plant & Power on behalf of the Social Value International (SVI) network. Speakers include local, national and international thought-leaders and practitioners from across the social value agenda.

The essence of #SVM2020: People, Plant & Power is highly relevant to all sectors. We all know that the urgency of climate change is unignorable and must be addressed. Systemic and growing inequality is an equally urgent priority requiring immediate action.

Social Value Matters conferences are designed for leaders, planners and activators in all sectors, those seeking tools, guidance and knowledge on how to take concrete actions to address climate change and inequality across their various spheres of responsibility.

The world is calling for new and better leadership, actions that truly acknowledge and value both people and our environment, and approaches that increase wellbeing for all. Corporate, public sector and social sector roles, organizations of all sizes and each individual has an important role to play. #SVM2020: People, Plant & Power is your SVI resource on the path to a better way forward.
