The 2019 LCF CSR Expo Program
The goal of the 2019 CSR Expo is to highlight collaboration among business, government, and civil society as a means to achieving collective impact. Its objectives are to:
SHARE. To share insights and best-fit practices; INSPIRE. To bring people together for a common purpose; and EMPOWER. To provide a platform for collaboration.
Thus, this year’s CSR celebration will highlight the theme “Toward Collective Impact: Collaborations that Work!”. It is about connecting people to more opportunities to work together and sustain efforts in light of calls for inclusive development and collective impact in addressing Philippines’ pressing socialissues, particularly poverty.
A two (2) day conference will be held at Jose Rizal Hall, Philippine International Convention Center (PICC), Pasay City, Metro Manila. Sessions should be immediately after plenary and breakout.
DAY 1 (July 4-Thursday)
- National Anthem
It has been 19 years since the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) was launched in July 2000 with a call to companies to align strategies and operations with universal principles and take actions that advance societal goals. Has collaboration moved the needle on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)? What’s in it for Philippine corporations?
Twenty-eight (28) years-old and Ninety-three (93) members-strong - how have LCF members made a dent in the development and sustainability landscape? Where are the gaps and what can we do to reach more and help more effectively?
Collaboration is viewed as an opportunity for partners to create something new or scale up an existing approach together that might be impossible for a single organization to do on its own. Corporations, NGOs, government have been collaborating for at least two decades and yet, community challenges remain. What are we missing? How can we do better? Examples of international collective approaches which have moved complex challenges forward will be shared.
Toward Government and Private Stakeholders' Collective Impact on Quality Education.
Despite many challenges, public-private partnerships have resulted in improved education outcomes. For years, CSR/foundations have continuously engaged with the Department of Education, DSWD, CHED, TESDA, CSR/foundations and individuals to help improve literacy and economic opportunities. As more collaborations happen and with more money invested in educational intervention programs, it is imperative to take a look at their collaborative impact and translate learnings to policies and actions.
Presentation of real-life models of collaboration by the private sector that work with government, school and communities that successfully implemented collaboration-building strategies will be shared. We will listen to their stories and learn what made their collaborations work.
This session will be a presentation of how the government development goals are achieved through multi-sector collaboration. Examples will be shared respectively by invited Speakers from Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas and Armed Forces of the Philippines on financial inclusion advocacy and on whole nation approach to peace-building.
