ACFID is calling for expressions of interest for concurrent sessions at its National Conference, to be held on the 18th and 19th of October 2023 in Sydney. ACFID members and other organisations in the sector are invited to propose sessions that contribute to advancing this year’s theme:
Global Development 2.0: disruptive dynamics, inspired ideas.
ACFID Conference 2023 turns our attention to the passion, the expertise and the energy that can be found in all corners of the world from innovators, the youth and the extraordinary people and organisations that are not sitting down and waiting. The two-day program includes space for both virtual and face-to-face concurrent sessions that advance the conference theme by exploring topics, issues or bold ideas for delegates to learn about, discuss and debate.
Concurrent sessions are an important platform to delve deeper into specific aspects of the Conference theme through formats which promote participation of delegates.
ACFID Conference Lead, Raewyn Lans, encourages organisations considering submitting an EOI to harness diverse perspectives.
“We are looking for sessions that will help us answer questions such as What partnerships and collaborations are needed to push systemic change at the top, so grassroots organisations can continue the work on the ground? And What technology is emerging that can be harnessed for collective impact?”
Commenting on the call for EOIs, ACFID Learning and Impact Advisor, Anne Fitzpatrick, said:
“Conference 2023 will be an opportunity for the sector to come together and look at the challenges we are facing and share ideas for how we can tackle them in new and innovative ways.”
“We are looking forward to expressions of interest for sessions that actively involve delegates through virtual collaborative technologies or face to face participation and engagement.”
The call for EOIs is open until Friday 16th June 2023, with information sessions available for interested organisations.
