The Net Impact Conference is the leading forum for students and professionals who want to tackle the world’s toughest social and environmental problems. This year, we’re ready to break boundaries—leaving limits behind, forging unexpected alliances, and exploring creative solutions—to transform the world.

Join us November 6-8 in Minneapolis to tap into the energizing, collaborative spirit of the Twin Cities – and our global network. Come and experience how one weekend immersed in our powerful community can give you the inspiration, learning, and connections to set positive change in motion.

The 2014 Net Impact Conference is an opportunity to…

  • Engage with 350+ inspiring speakers from across sectors who are breaking new ground in social and environmental change
  • Learn from 100 sessions across 10 tracks—from Sustainable Food to International Development—designed to take your inspiration, innovation and impact to the next level
  • Connect with 2,500 like-minded student and professional peers and thought leaders from our global Net Impact community

New for 2014

Every year (we’re now in our 22nd!), we build on our success, improve our content, and find new ways to bring the best and brightest ideas to our community. This year is no exception:

  • More workshops, debates, and other interactive session formats
  • Greater opportunities for making connections, including structured Networking Salons, popular no-host dinners, parties, and more
  • Local Impact: Twin Cities sessions allow attendees to roll up their sleeves and put their expertise to work on strategic challenges for locally-based organizations
  • …and so much more!
