Changing Your World Conference
This exciting event could be best described as: Disrupted meets Festival of Dangerous Ideas meets TEDX – conversations with a huge helping of creativity, collaboration and impactful energy.
The Changing Your World Conference provides an opportunity for key actors and emerging leaders in the sustainability space (government and business professionals, researchers and innovators, youth and the broader community) to network, learn about emerging innovations and technology, and co-design solutions to shared sustainability and impact management challenges for local government and the broader community.
The conference format was originally devised and delivered in 2020 and has now evolved into an exciting three-day biennial event for the City of Canning.
OWNING OUR IMPACTS IN 2022
In 2022, owing to COVID impacts, the Changing Your World Conference was held entirely online! The theme for 2022 was ‘Owning our Impacts’. The theme aligns with the City of Canning's targets and aspirations for sustainability and aims to engage our citizens and stakeholders in the co-creation of imaginative, innovative, sustainable solutions. It is a call to action for our community to take individual responsibility for our impacts on the planet, and it's the perfect place to find the partners, supporters, networks and resources to create positive collective impacts and make real, enduring change.
