10 years of Impact: Festival for the Future is back in-person
Celebrating its 10th year, the event is back to being in-person and attracts attendees from across New Zealand. Taking place at Wellington’s TSB Arena from 30 July to 1 August, the festival combines inspiring speakers, workshops, entertainment, and a festival marketplace activation space for social innovation.
Festival for the Future 2021 is a three-day summit showcasing leadership and innovation for impact.
This year, the festival will feature more than 35 speakers, including Deputy Prime Minister Grant Robertson; Animation Research Managing Director Sir Ian Taylor; Ethique Founder Brianne West; Young New Zealander of the Year Jazz Thornton; Banqer Founder and Impact Award Winner Kendall Flutey; and Sam Stubbs, Founder of Simplicity.
ENZ is proud to partner with Inspiring Stories and the Festival for the Future as a silver sponsor, and will have an exhibition space on the festival’s marketplace floor. Through this partnership ENZ is advancing work towards the third pillar of the International Education Strategy 2018 - 2030, Global Citizenship.
ENZ is also proudly supporting the Global Impact Award, presented to a young New Zealander who demonstrates leadership and takes action to support people and communities beyond our shores, especially in developing countries. The award will be presented as part of the Impact Awards night on Saturday 31 July.
