Annual Conference

Virtual Member’s Exchange 2021

The Social Value UK Members Exchange(#SVUKMemEX) is an annual conference for members of the UK social value community to come together and share best practice, discuss ideas and drive innovation in the sector.

Coming to the end of lockdown in the UK, it has never been more important for our members to come together to discuss and decide how we will ensure we build a better and more sustainable future for us all. Key issues to be addressed include the importance of place, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), social value and the built environment, changes to our space during the pandemic, transparency, accountability and more.

Join us between June 14th-17th 2021 for webinars, talks, networking, virtual roundtables, wellbeing activities and more. Together we will improve wellbeing, reduce inequality and end environmental degradation.
