The Purpose

The conference will explore the settings, approaches, methods and experiences that will guide our country to forge a socially cohesive and inclusive country into the future. Those who are deeply thinking about the progress of our country are encouraged to come together to reflect on action, lessons learnt, deliberate, and share ideas.

Presenters will share insights from which all can benefit to shape further action and refine current endeavours. Breakout sessions will enable participants to learn from each other's experience and ideas. 

"Let your vision be world embracing."

"Ye are the fruits of one tree and the leaves of one branch, the flowers of one garden."
