Progress 2017

Join Australia's top campaigners and change-makers for two days in Melbourne, June 6-7.

I'm coming!



Our world is at a crossroads, and there has never been a more important time for civil society to come together and strengthen our efforts to make Australia a more just, sustainable and welcoming nation.

Progress is the key biennial event that gathers, energises, and propels forward Australia’s leading campaigners, advocates and change-makers. You won’t want to miss it!

WHERE AND WHEN?

Progress 2017 takes place over 4 premier venues in the heart of the Melbourne CBD, including the historic Melbourne Town Hall on Tuesday 6 June and Wednesday 7 June.

WHO WILL ATTEND?

Progress 2017 brings together 1,500 of Australia’s thought leaders, policy advocates and change-makers. Many organisations are bringing teams of 10-15 staff, volunteers or board members. Every sector – from aid to the environment, social welfare to human rights, socially-minded business to trade union movements are represented.  Get your tickets today!

WHAT WILL HAPPEN?

With more than 60 sessions to choose from, there will be skill-shares and workshops, insightful panels, international keynotes and the launch of major new initiatives. Progress 2017 is the best moment of the year to break out of our ‘silos’ and make strong, lasting connections with hundreds of Australia’s leading change-makers.

 

Who are the Speakers?

Speakers include leading campaigners and thought leaders from around Australia and the world. The full program will be announced in April 2017, but we are thrilled to announce our first international guests – Winnie Byanyima, International Executive Director of Oxfam, and The Guardian UK’s Owen Jones.
