Northern Rivers businesses and local councils need to catch on to the global movement of social responsibility in order to survive in our region, according to Social Business Development Manager at Northern Rivers Social Development Council (NRSDC), Sasha Graham.

“Business people, non-profits, NGOs and councils in the Northern Rivers region can create positive social change and economic diversity by re-thinking the way they operate,” Ms Graham said. “By embracing the concept of social enterprise and sustainable development, they can benefit themselves and their communities”

On November 22, NRSDC will hold the first Northern Rivers Social Enterprise Symposium to promote social innovation and highlight ways of diversifying the local economy and Ms Graham believes the Northern Rivers area is ripe for embracing these ideas.
