Community is currency in the New Economy: Exploring community currencies
Money, one of civilisation's oldest, most pervasive and powerful inventions, is currently undergoing the most exciting process of experimentation, re-invention and re-imagination in its long history. In parallel with the emergence of internet and mobile technologies, co-operative and decentralised organisational structures, and the growing application of biomimicry and ecological design to human systems, new community-based currencies are emerging in response to a crumbling and destructive economic system. At this moment, Victoria is on the leading edge of this emergent movement. Join community currency developers Michael Linton, Jason Guille and Jordan Bober to find out where money is going, and how you can take part in this exciting transformation. 

Business Models: Delivering Social Impact: What form of incorporation is best?
For-profit, Non-profit, Co-op, CCC... what does it all mean?  If you are looking to start an enterprise with an impact mandate, you may be wondering which business model is best.  Nicole Chaland and Rebecca Pearson will share their perspectives and insights on the different forms of incorporation that are available to people and organizations looking to deliver social impact through a social enterprise model.

Non-profits Starting a Social Enterprise
The focus of this workshop is to encourage non-profit leaders to take a practical look at the opportunities and challenges of starting a social enterprise as a way to diversify their revenue sources.  We will explore readiness, feasibility, resources and lessons learnt.  Co-facilitated by Andrea Di-Lucca, Community Investment Associate with Vancity and Clare Yazganoglu, Executive Director of the Victoria Women In Need Community Cooperative - we will share our own ‘on the ground’ experiences of starting, supporting, financing and running social enterprises.

Building Resilient Neighbourhoods
Resilience is all about strengthening our community’s ability to respond and adapt to big changes and deep challenges. It’s about all of us working together to build a stronger, more connected neighbourhood where everyone’s basic needs are met. Resilience looks different in each neighbourhood. It might involve neighbourhood groups working together towards  common goals and “can-do” neighbourhood culture. Community centres and schools providing “town hall” settings for re-vitalized public engagement and collaboration.   Developing walkable, densified neighbourhood centres, and retro-fitted energy efficient homes. Increasing access to local food and green spaces. Supporting locally-owned businesses. Fostering streets where neighbours know each other and help each other out. The possibilities are almost endless. In this session you will have a chance to learn more about why resilience is such a critical concept in today’s context and learn about projects you can start today with your neighbours. Sarah Amyot

Collaborative Innovative Intelligence: What is the process of large scale social innovation?
Collaborative Innovative Intelligence is a key ingredient of the 'secret sauce' for living the new economy. To tackle the complex issues or 'stuck' systems that stand in the way of a more resilient economy, we need to broadly cultivate the capacity to work across diversity to listen, talk and learn together so that entirely new and effective responses can emerge and take life. In this conversation, I will share what I have been learning about collaborative social innovation from a practitioner perspective and outline the mindset, principles and tools that seem to be effective for working with a crowd (multi-stakeholders) to get unstuck and navigate with rigour toward transformative outcomes. Monica Pohlmann
