#CSRshareDay is an online 24 hour twitter campaign where sustainability champions across the globe host an hour of conversation discussing CSR and sustainability. The campaign plays leading role in the organisation of the global initiative to share wisdom, ideas, challenges, best practices, and case studies with sustainability experts from around the globe, about how to make events more sustainable. The aim of the campaign is to:
- Share the stories of people who are making a positive impact on sustainability in the world.
- Get more people talking about specific areas of sustainability that may not be discussed on a regular basis.
- Connect people through the conversation of sustainability.
- Share best practices, creative ideas and more to inspire others!
Check out what our own Fiona Pelham has to say about the "Power of We" in inspiring others to create a sustainable future!
Since the campaign began in 2015, the twitter chat has passed through Cape Town, Sydney, Nairobi, Sofia, Copenhagen, Tokyo, Manchester, Harare, London, Barcelona, New York, Portland, Toronto, Ottawa, Mexico City and Bangkok just to name a few and has given professionals interested in events and sustainability an opportunity to interact and converse with people they might not normally have been able to and learn best practice on sustainability.
In 2017, the campaign reached 1,601,391 people, resulting in a worldwide conversation with hopes of inspiring and causing change for the better.
2018's campaign will be on Monday 23rd April, and the aim is to reach 2,000,000 people! With your attendance and engagement we can make this happen and have an even bigger and better impact.
