MINNEAPOLIS, MN, Sep. 17 /CSRwire/ - Is it possible for one weekend to inspire a generation to work for a sustainable future? The 2014 Net Impact Conference aims to do just that and is bringing its annual event to the Minneapolis Convention Center November 6-8. The conference is the flagship event of Net Impact, a global nonprofit that inspires a new generation to create positive social and environmental impact in the workplace and the world. This year’s conference challenges participants to break boundaries – leaving limits behind, forging unexpected alliances, and exploring creative solutions – to transform the world.

The Net Impact Conference brings together thousands of next-generation leaders with forward thinking businesses and nonprofits for a dynamic exchange of ideas through inspiring keynotes, panels, interactive workshops, boot camps, and special events. Ultimately, the conference aims to inspire a new generation use their careers to make a net impact that transforms their lives, their organizations and the world.

It’s a lofty goal, but with 22 conferences under its belt, Net Impact has created a powerful forum for young leaders to tackle the world’s toughest social and environmental problems.

“Join us November 6-8 in Minneapolis to tap into the energizing, collaborative spirit of the Twin Cities – and our global Net Impact network,” said Jessica Fleuti, Net Impact Conference Director. “With its civic-minded community, the Twin Cities is an ideal location for this year’s conference.”  

Highlights for this year’s event include:

  • More than 2,700 like-minded students, professional peers, and thought leaders, traveling to the Twin Cities from around the world
  • More than 100 sessions across 10 tracks – from Corporate Impact to International Development – designed to take your inspiration, innovation, and impact to the next level
  • More than 350 speakers from across sectors breaking new ground in social and environmental change.
