Flinders University is participating in a new festival that aims to help people to rediscover what it means to be a ‘good human’.
The Festival of Good Humans will connect technologists, academics, corporates, creatives and not-for-profits and support them to embrace technology and use it to do great things in the community.
New Venture Institute (NVI) Director Matt Salier will be on a special launch panel, discussing how NVI uses technology for social benefit.
The launch will kick off with an online ‘Social Impact Bootcamp’ sponsored by New Venture Institute and Finders University, and delivered by Bert Verhoeven, Flinders’ senior lecturer in Innovation and Enterprise.
The bootcamp will deep-dive into social impact innovation, technology and collaboration on a global scale.
It will also cover social impact measurement trends and explore how global corporations and not-for-profit organisations are measuring their impact.
The techniques that will be showcased at the bootcamp mirror the curriculum of Flinders’ Innovation and Enterprise program and are game-changers in maximising the social good from innovative ventures.
The week-long festival will officially run from 28 September to 4 October with a launch event on 31 August.
Australian not-for-profit technology provider, Connecting Up, in partnership with Community Sector Banking, will facilitate the festival.
They will be delivering a range of think tanks, storytelling sessions and a street party focused on how the community can become ‘better humans’.
