Next Generation Capitalism – profit, people, planet, will bring together leading thinkers and practitioners to discuss business and economics that work for community value. The forum is being offered as a free event as part of the 2012 International Year of Co-operatives.
When: Tuesday, 7 August 2012 (6pm start, finger food and drinks served at 7:30pm)
Where: BMW Edge, Federation Square, Cnr Swanston and Flinders Street, Melbourne
The forum will be hosted by Michael Short from Fairfax's The Zone, with panel discussion seeking to engage the audience in exploring the notion of a next generation of capitalism.
At a time when 'pursuit of profit at any cost' business is on the nose around the world, Next Generation Capitalism advocates embracing a recreated version of capitalism that values people in its bottom line.
Forum panel members will include Melina Morrison, founding director of Social Business Australia, and social entrepreneur Danny Almagor.
