ABOUT US

What We Do

Our goal at SINZ is to connect, educate and inspire young people with innovative mindsets, skills, and opportunities to enact positive social change. We aim to achieve this goal through 4 key portfolios and their respective offerings outlined below:

1. Conference

Our flagship Social Innovation Conference for students and professionals serves as the “buffet" where attendees gain a taste of a wide variety of social issues and discussions ranging from Technology, Food, the Private Sector, Inequality to Politics to name a few.

2. Competitions

Our various competitions aim to serve as the “gym" which allows students to practice and develop problem-solving skills through real-world
scenarios of various organisations that feature in different industries and settings.

3. Community Engagement

The Community Engagement portfolio acts as the “bridge" connecting students to real-world experiences and communities outside of lecture theatres and off the university campus.

4. Outreach 

In 2020 we are launching a new online content platform to bring educational and inspirational materials to our audiences’ screens whenever, wherever they are.
Through a dedicated team of content-creators and technicians we aim to connect, educate and inspire our audience to ultimately expand the “outreach” of our impact with flexibility and effectiveness.
