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.
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
