IdeasXChange Hub: Panels and Workshops

ABOUT THE IDEASXCHANGE PANELS AND WORKSHOPS

The unprecedented issues of today inspire us to connect minds and spread knowledge through talks and workshops.

We believe that many of today’s social, economic, and environmental challenges are all interconnected. Solving them will require innovation and collaboration.

We host interactive workshops and panels on a wide range of social, economic, and environmental themes by bringing together some of the brightest minds in their respective fields. Attendees come from diverse backgrounds. By joining our events you will learn and connect with other like-minded people.

Panelists | Knowledge Experts

Our panelists have ranged from community leaders, CEOs of social enterprises, ecological economists, food security and international development experts, and policy makers.

In 2015, IdeasXChange hosted six events that brought together 28 panelists from many industries and interest groups. This included social sustainability, food security, ecological economics, corporate social responsibility, international aid, and green technology/green economy. See more here.

Workshops | Connecting Minds

Our workshops connect students, academia, and practitioners at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, Canada.

Often times we host them after panel discussions because we want to give everyone the chance to exchange ideas and foster a space for innovative thinking. Our events are unique as we give you the chance to connect with other like-minded people and the changemakers of tomorrow.

Awards

IdeasXChange has been awarded four grants by the University of British Columbia (UBC) in 2015-16.
