The 3Points Connection Series is presented by 3Bridges. The theme for 2017 is Building Inclusive Communities. The outcomes the 3Points Connection Series seek to provide include - a purposeful connection with forward-thinking peers to build collaborative inclusive communities, models for sustainable social ventures that focus on solving wicked problems and opportunities to develop innovative partnerships between business and community.

The conference will provoke thoughts around ageing issues and opportunities that come with living a longer life. We will explore in depth about how we can reframe ageing and our attitudes towards older people and recognising the contribution they bring to society without disregarding the issues arising from living a longer life.
