    Our 2023 theme

    Social innovation for mental health

    With mental health problems on the rise globally, young adults are left particularly vulnerable. Many can't get the help they need because it's either unavailable or too expensive, and the ongoing stigma around mental health stops them from seeking support. Social innovations and grassroots solutions have the power to transform mental health support. But they cannot do it alone. In order to flourish and scale, they need a nurturing ecosystem and cross-sector support.

    This October we are gathering social innovators, investors, experts, and youth voices for an insightful online discussion on the actions and innovations we need in order to revolutionize the mental health system.

    Our event is supported by Nordic Talks, a series of talks and podcast episodes addressing the biggest global challenges.

    Started as an initiative in 2018 in Sweden, Partnering for Change grew into an annual global even which shares insights and inspiration on innovation and sustainability, and how we can work together to solve the pressing issues of our time.

    About the event series



    With very little time to reach Agenda 2030 it is time to shift our focus and challenge our mindsets to catalyze and build a more green, equitable and socially sustainable future. But no actor can’t do it alone. We need to build strong alliances and partnerships across sectors, and combine our strengths in order to reach sustainable and long lasting positive impact.


    In order to take action and accelerate the power of social entrepreneurship and partnerships we have created a platform where we gather experts and leaders from the corporate sector, public sector and the social sector. With this platform we want to discuss and share insights and encourage concrete actions for solving our most pressing social issues. 


    Since 2018 we have arranged Partnering for Change events both physical and virtual,  in Sweden, Lithuania, Croatia and Bulgaria. The events gather stakeholders from the business, public and social sectors, and each event has been visited/viewed by between 200-500 people.
