CEDA, in partnership with national ideas-forum series One Just World, presents a thought provoking breakfast about corporate and social responsibility and the world's poor on Wednesday September 15. Currently, about 3.7 billion or 60% of the world's population is too poor to participate in the market economy. Imagine the massive leap forward for both humanity and the global economy if that were to change.  Join us to consider what we might be able to do to make a difference.
 
The CEO of World Vision, Tim Costello, will headline the breakfast challenging Australian corporates, NGOs and governments in the quest to tackle world poverty. Other speakers to be advised.
