In search of a better world

Welcome Leadership Victoria Alumni

Hosted by:
Jed Macartney OAM

August 23, 2022 @ 5:15 pm - 7:30 pm


Indian writer and activist Arundhati Roy says:

Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.

Is a better world on the way?

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.”

Leadership Victoria envisage an inclusive, equitable and sustainable society, engaging with the world through exercising purposeful leadership.

Three speakers will explore what does “better” look like, their thoughts on hopes and concerns in getting there in the next 10 years, and what leadership is required do so.

You’ll have plenty of time to ask questions and dive into meaningful discussion with the panel and other participants in the room. 

With our values and interests aligned, Melbourne Forum is pleased to warmly welcome our alliance partner Leadership Victoria to this stimulating conversation.

This event celebrates the alliance between Leadership Victoria and Melbourne Forum, and is exclusive to Leadership Victoria Alumni and MF members only. An invoice of $35 to cover some nibbles and drinks will be sent to you via email, after registration.

Now fully booked and registrations are closed.
