MEC: Social Justice, Wellbeing, Identity- taking forward a cross-sector approach

  • 27th March 2017 - 27th March 2017
  • 10:30 – 16:00
  • NCVO, Society Building, 8 All Saints Street


Aim of the day:

The aim is to take the ISME World Conference themes of Social Justice, Well-being and Identity and to examine them through the various sector lenses – aiming to establish what we can learn from each other (so not re-inventing the wheel); where there are differences and similarities in perception and practice; how we can influence others and how we can celebrate good practice.
