Announcing The Search: Growing Collective Impact in Australia

Collaboration for Impact are launching a new initiative that’s set to accelerate the Collective Impact movement in Australia, and help shift the way communities across Australia approach society’s biggest challenges. Brought together by the  Centre for Social Impact, Westpac Foundation, Social Solutions Group (USA), Blackbaud Pacific, Results Leadership Group (Australia and USA), Social Ventures Australia and Australian Communities Foundation, we are proud to announce The Search. With The Search, we are looking to find one community from across the country to receive up to $1 million of resources and support in implementing the Collective Impact framework over a three-year period.  At the time of launching, the pool of resources and support is valued at $416,000 The Search Governance Group and others will help build the pool of resources and support throughout The Search process. The Search initiative, the first of its kind in Australia, involves a staged capacity-building application process, that will take place over nine months. Applicants will be offered support through:

  1. membership to online learning platform providing access to the full resources and network of the Collaboration for Impact community;
  2. a monthly webinar;
  3. a weekly Question and Answer service; and
  4. a discounted rate to the Collective Impact 2014 Conference in Melbourne, 22-23 July 2014.

Additionally, short-listed communities will receive up to $5000 worth of support to significantly advance their Collective Impact initiative for their application. An eminent group of cross-sector Judges from around the world will support The Search process and select the community to receive the support. We believe The Search has the potential to transform the way we respond to complex social problems in Australia, and create long-lasting social impact. “Systemic change ultimately depends on a sustained campaign to increase the capacity and coordination of an entire field.”

Collective Impact 2014: Melbourne follows on from our sell-out event in Sydney in February this year. This was a landmark event for Australia, convening for the first time international thought leaders, local practitioners and a range of players from across the government, not-for-profit, philanthropy and business sectors to learn and engage around Collective Impact. 

For those that missed out on the Sydney event, you are in for two days of highly practical learning for leaders and practitioners looking to implement the Collective Impact framework in Australia.

This event is hosted by social change and leadership experts at the Centre for Social Impact and Social Leadership Australia.

  • Convene: Meet like-minded practitioners from across Australia and be at the forefront of a new movement in this emerging field of practice.
  • Immerse: Participate in an interactive and experiential learning program with changemakers from government, the not-for-profit and philanthropy sectors, and business. Gain skills you can use immediately.
  • Learn: Get the leading edge. Hear from a line up of pioneering Australian practitioners and international leaders in Collective Impact who will share real world case studies, knowledge and insights.
