Our Story

In June 2012, the first TEDxKelowna was held and a number of social impact leaders shared their stories with an engaged and inspired Kelowna audience.  The event was the catalyst that led us to create a new organization that is focused on developing, fostering and supporting innovative and sustainable solutions to social problems.

Our Vision:

  • The Changemakers community consists of for-profit and non-profit businesses, government agencies and the general public
  • The power of business is leveraged to drive social change
  • All businesses successfully embed social purpose in their operations
  • Measurable progress can be seen on pressing social and environmental issues

We will achieve our Vision by:

Educating and Inspiring

  • Bringing forward ideas and stories of impact
  • Helping the community make sense of global trends

Building Community Connections

  • Providing opportunities for networking and collaboration

Advocating for Change

  • Taking a leadership role in sparking change
