This year we have transformed our annual Global Ideas Forum into Intersect 2019. Intersect 2019 will be presented in conjunction with our friends at Unbound, bringing together Australia’s leading and emerging innovators for an engaging day of big ideas!

With an exceptional line-up of facilitators, workshops and discussions, the event offers a unique opportunity to learn from and create networks with remarkable change-makers who call Melbourne home. Participants will have access to loads of hands-on, practice-based workshops specifically tailored to the needs and skills of people in the room – in addition to engaging debates, storytelling sessions and networking opportunities!

This year Global Ideas will bring a specific focus on health and how local organisations are making a big impact both locally and internationally.





Our programs draw participants from our diverse, interdisciplinary community and provide action oriented learning to build capacity and lead change.


Our annual conference brings together a multidisciplinary community of health professionals, policy makers, program designers, students and entrepreneurs. The program includes keynote speakers, intimate workshops and design sprints led by skilled and experienced facilitators.
Our Labs inspire deep engagement on a single global health issue, with a content expert leading an interactive session aimed at translating the latest academic research into practical solutions for change. We help participants improve their understanding of global health and their role as practitioners.
Jams are small group workshops designed to develop familiarity with and apply the tools of human-centred design to global health issues. They are facilitated by internal and external experts, with real-life case studies provided by our partner organisations.
