Rotary Forum 2018: Impossible Dreams for Wellington: city and the region.
The 2018 Forum asks: how do we make our Impossible Dreams come true?
Should you be there to learn and influence it?
It follows from the highly successful 2017 Forum, when we gave a platform to diverse voices – speakers and participants – to share the challenges and some inspirational ideas on the future of Wellington.
For 2018 we have invited a new set of speakers – twelve disruptors and dreamers - to choose their own topic, to detonate powerful ideas and stimulate discussion.
Participants in the Forum will be 250 of the most engaged and interesting people in Wellington.
More than this, we want to enable all Wellingtonians to become more engaged the future of our city and region. We will enable this through mainstream media, social media and live streaming of keynote speeches. 2017 gave a platform to diverse voices – speakers and participants – to share the challenges and some inspirational ideas on the future of Wellington. But it was merely the beginning.
We anticipate contributions from individuals and groups prior to the Forum; for example feeder groups holding discussions and hosting speaker events, plus video interviews and blog posts from some of the speakers.
We want all Wellingtonians to become engaged in the Forum, through mainstream media, social media and live streaming of keynote speeches.
Presented by the Rotary Club of Wellington in partnership
with Victoria University of Wellington - Centre for Lifelong Learning.
