The organisers have selected speakers to give a broad overview of some of the many initiatives which are currently taking place in Luxembourg in the social impact space. Those organisations will briefly pitch on how they are contributing to the Luxembourg ecosystem and beyond. They hope - by showcasing the work of these organisations - that more companies and individuals will be encouraged to develop initiatives to promote positive change.

Kaspar Wansleben of the Luxembourg Microfinance and Development Fund, explained "Innovative partnerships and diversity are at the heart of our Fund. As one of the earlier players on Luxembourg's impact scene, we now want to share our experiences with other players and learn more about other successful partnerships promoting social change. We thank the Ville du Luxembourg and the many other organisations speaking for their collaboration and support."
