Through providing sustainable products, services, and informed advice, we aim to facilitate their journey. Impact Day embodies a collaborative spirit across the private, public, and third sectors, enabling us to unite and accelerate sustainable change in our region.”

It’s our immediate responsibility right here, right now. Sustainable thinking should permeate every individual action, starting within our region.”
Impact Day is designed to foster a more comprehensive understanding of sustainability. It aims to educate the public about practical, everyday ways to make sustainable choices and the opportunities available in the burgeoning green economy.
Attendees will have access to a range of engaging activities, including workshops on sustainable living, panel discussions on green business practices, and lively debates on environmental policy. The Impact Day experience also includes a bustling EXPO area and the highly anticipated Impact Show.
