How might we leverage digital innovation to help solve some of Australia’s stickier social problems? 
Designed as half day sessions, the Something Digital roundtables bring industry together with government and not for profits to amplify solutions to issues such as:
  • Homelessness
  • Domestic violence
  • Emergency response
  • Mental health
  • Misinformation
  • Cyberbullying
  • And of course - the digital divide
The goal is two-fold:
  • to increase knowledge of the digital challenges within the specific area
  • for every attendee to make (at least) one commitment to progress or amplify a solution
Commitments could be as simple as an introduction; a chat with a colleague about an already existing program; the start of a potential collaboration; or a donation of used equipment.

Something Digital is not here to dish out funding or to control the conversation, simply to raise awareness and potentially kick off initiatives that can improve the lives of those impacted by any of the above challenges.

The output from each roundtable will be collated and disseminated with the participants as well as generally with the community. A special overview session will also be held during the digital festival to further the outcomes.

We are looking for partners to help us deliver 3-4 roundtables, partly from a funding perspective, but also from a community development angle. If you are interested, drop Nadine a line on
