Social Value Matters 2020

This September, Social Value Canada is convening Social Value Matters 2020: People, Planet & Power on behalf of the Social Value International network. Speakers include local, national and international thought-leaders, and practitioners from across the social value agenda.

Social Value Matters 2020 People, Planet & Power is set to be the biggest social value event of the year, tackling themes such as inequality, climate change, our post-COVID future and much more.


Far too often, key decisions about economic growth, environmental impact and social policy are made using a limited concept of value that fails to consider important effects on people and the environment. As the gap between rich and poor increases and the effects of climate change become more apparent, the need to change the way society accounts for value has never been more urgent.

David Shields will be speaking at the event on September 30th at 19:15 and the panel will include Mayor Lisa Helps (Mayor of Victoria, BC) and Mayor Josie Osborne (Mayor of Tofino, BC)

Social Value Matters 2020 will take place as an online summit between 28th September and 2nd October. Buy tickets and find out more here.
