Social Impact Zone

08:00–17:00 Day 1

Sime Social Impact invites non-profit organizations and social entrepreneurs for a free, invitation-only, Sime experience with a long and proud tradition.
Together with Ekskäret Klustret we will be hosting a Sime Social Impact Zone in Klustret’s unique co-creating environment and at the “Revelation Space”.

Aiming to build bridges between the social impact sector and the business sector to address the complexity and turbulent challenges we face at work and in society, we look at which topics are on top of the “social impact agenda” of today and tomorrow, in times of constant change and complexity.

Agenda overview Day 1

Breakfast and welcome at Klustret, floor 7, with Therese von Blixen, co-founder Sime Social Impact, Caroline Stiernstedt Sahlborn, Ekskäret Stiftelsen and Heidi Andersen, Shero Leaders.

For the rest of the day, we invite you to join both the Leadershift Zone and Sime sessions, with topics highly relevant to leader- and ownership from a social impact perspective.
