Have you ever wanted to make a positive difference but aren't quite sure of the best way to go about it?

Elevate 2017: Summit for Social Change is an event aimed at connecting you with other like-minded individuals. Over the course of the conference you will have the opportunity to explore how we can all contribute to the development sector and collaborate better with NGOs and businesses to achieve improvements in the lives of others.

The one day event will be taking place on 29th July 2017 in Auckland and is being managed by Engineers Without Borders NZ (EWBNZ) with support from Volunteer Service Abroad (VSA).
