Social Enterprise World Forum 2022

Social Enterprise World Forum (SEWF) is hosted in Brisbane this year and Torrens University is proud to be a major partner, playing a significant role in forging international changemaking networks.

Torrens University Australia wants to be the most connected university on the planet. We have partnered with SEWF in 2022 because our compassionate response has always been to lead by example with our staff and our students, and to live and die by our values. We believe that together we can create a more sustainable world where purpose, passion, and profit sync together for the greater good.

Torrens University Australia CEO and President, Linda Brown, believes the concept of social entrepreneurship is in our DNA at Torrens University. As a featured keynote speaker at SEWF she will share her thoughts on why every university has a responsibility to create changemakers.

Social Impact Report 2021

Our Social Impact Report 2021 is a report card, a testimony, and a call to action. It's our story of resilience, creativity, and triumph in the face of global disruption.

In March 2020, the world changed, and we responded. Higher education needed a shake-up, and the pandemic accelerated our action. Collectively, we adapted and created impact.

Now is the time for the change-makers, the disruptors, and the agitators. Now is the time to truly connect the world for good.
The world changed. We responded. | Our Social Impact from March 2020 until November 2021.

Thin Ice VR confronts impact of climate change

Thin Ice VR premiered at the South Australian Museum in November 2021, since then it has been spreading its important message and collecting accolades at film festivals across the globe including Cannes World Film Festival Remember the Future, and LAFA Los Angeles Film Festival.

Our award-winning documentary produced by Monkeystack will be showcased at SEWF where participants will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in this unique and engaging experience that demonstrates the impact of climate change and, hopefully, inspires them to take action to save our planet.
