Your SIA Summit is not shaped only by the official program, but also by the side experiences. Join us in various explorations of the local ecosystem and fun activities.

Photo Exhibition “Journey to Impact”

Join us for the photo exhibition opening on 28.11. at 19:30 at Art Corner of SPENS Center (Sutjeska 2) followed by a light cocktail. The exhibit will be open until 30.11.2023.

Journey to Impact spotlights the incredible lives of young people building solutions to the most pressing social and environmental issues of our time, whose stories mostly go untold. It explores their complex relationship with themes such as identity, leadership, and purpose, diving into what it means to try and change the world. Built around a collection of analog portraits and honest interviews with young agents of change from around the world, Journey to Impact shines a light on those considered “superheroes” in today’s society and reminds us all of our innate desire to live a purposeful life.

All profiled social entrepreneurs are members of the Social Impact Award community, one of the world’s largest communities of young social innovators under 30. Social Impact Award empowers youth in over 25 countries to transform society through impact-driven entrepreneurial journeys in an international community. Commissioned by SIA, all analog portraits were shot by Nikolas Rode, video interviews by Fraem Films, and the backdrop was painted by Jeremy Miedler in official Social Impact Award colors.
