Hosted by The Municipality of Central Corfu & Diapontia Islands at the historic Corfu Ionian Parliament Building

Streaming September 2023

Dedicated to promoting impactful change from the local level to global scale, Ideagen, ACS Athens, and ALLILONnet are excited to present the 2023 local change for global impact summit. This summit, hosted at the prestigious Ionian Parliament building in Corfu, Greece, will highlight Corfu and Corfu's leadership and unite leaders from diverse industries and sectors to address the pressing challenges faced by their communities and organizations and beyond.

By fostering cross-sectoral conversations and collaborations, we aim to harness the collective power of diverse perspectives and experiences and lay the groundwork for future cross-sectoral initiatives.

The Vision: To accelerate awareness and progress toward achieving the 17 Global Goals by 2030.

Our Summit Mission: A Joint Approach to Deliver Collective Impact
Large-scale change to meet unprecedented social, resource, business, political and organizational challenges of today requires broad cross-sector coordination. When organizations and leaders across different sectors commit to solving a specific issue through a collective approach, they can make an impact that far exceeds the potential of their individual agendas. Ideagen Global, ACS Athens, and ALLILONnet strive to be the catalyst for this change by convening stakeholders, both locally and worldwide, to collaborate on solutions to provide universal impact.

Our Partners:
ACS Athens: ACS Athens is a student-centered international school, embracing American educational philosophy, principles and values. Through excellence in teaching and diverse educational experiences, ACS Athens challenges all students to realize their unique potential: academically, intellectually, socially and ethically — to thrive as responsible global citizens. 

ALLILONnet: ALLILONnet is The global network of Greeks and friends of Greece, for solidarity in the professional field, mainly in favor of young people, for studies, professional integration, careers, entrepreneurship and innovation. Independent, non-governmental and non-profit. 

Municipality of Central Corfu & Diapontia Islands: The event is co-organized by the Municipality of Central Corfu & Diapontia Islands, who have generously made the building of the Ionian Parliament available for the occasion. Furthermore, they are actively collaborating on the events content, which directly relates to the municipality.
