PINK Wayfinder FINAL (1).png

What happened in february 2017?

SIX brought together social innovation leaders and changemakers from across the world to explore our visions for the future and our roles getting there.

London programme


ten years of social innovation

The Wayfinder was about looking back to look forward, asking attendees:

• What is the state of social innovation and its current global context?

• How do we become more than the sum of our parts?

• What should we, as a community, aim to achieve by 2027?

The SIX Wayfinder was convened by SIX, hosted by Nesta and supported by the UNDP, Social Innovation Generation (SiG) National, The Australian Centre for Social Innovation (TACSI), and the JW McConnell Family Foundation. 160 leaders from over 34 countries attended the SIX Wayfinder from diverse backgrounds, both private and public, including government, design, international development, entrepreneurship and more.

We were joined by more than 45 speakers from around the world to find the way forward and 160 leaders from multiple disciplines.  

Now, we mustn’t be complacent. We have to come together and think how we can set stretching goals for the next 10 years, which really makes this movement and its tools commensurate with the difficult challenges that we face ahead.
