Is it completely ridiculous to think you can change the world?

Emerge is an event for people who are committed to redefining the world in which we live. Each year, Emerge brings together students, young professionals, entrepreneurs, organisations and activists from across the globe to challenge the status quo, and share ideas for a more socially and environmentally responsible world. Only at Emerge can you hear about the theory AND get hands-on practical tips for advancing social progress across a variety of sectors.

Emerge is all about ‘what’s next’: the big ideas, the future leaders, trends and key players. The diversity of topics and attendees means there is something for everyone – whether you’re looking for an introduction to the social impact sphere, or want to gain deeper insights and connections within your sector.
