DRIVING CHANGE - SOCIAL IMPACT THROUGH INNOVATION

TECHSTOCK 2017 explores how technology and social innovations are making a profound impact on our society and driving change in areas such as sustainability, health, education and gender equality. Walk through our exhibition halls and visit 30+ companies and organizations that are driving change for an afternoon of energy, interactive technology and displays, food trucks and more.

WHAT'S HAPPENING?

1-2 PM | Speaker Panel
Social Enterprise: Creating Impact through Innovation
We kick off TECHSTOCK 2017 with a discussion that explores the importance of the sustainable development goals that are helping to positively transform our world for future generations, and how social enterprises are working to create change through innovation.

Seating space is limited. RSVP for the Speaker Panel seperately at: https://techstockpanel.eventbrite.ca

2–6:30 PM | Tech Exhibition
Walk through our exhibition halls and visit 35+ local companies as they demonstrate how their technology or social innovation is making an impact on our society and driving change in areas such as sustainability, health, education and more.

2 – 6:30 PM | Live Graphic Recording Art
Need some reflective time? Visit the live painting booth with local artist Laura Wells and watch as the dynamic work-in-progress unfolds, all based on the theme of sustainability, economy and community. Help us put thoughts to canvas and tell us what social innovation and sustainability means to you. Your thoughts will help inspire the painting in this community effort!

2 – 6 PM | YYCFoodTrucks
Energize your afternoon of exploration with some of the best street food in town. Calgary has become a mecca for innovative food culture, and that continues to grow in Calgary’s food truck scene through a desire to offer locally made, high quality and sustainable options.
