The power of open conversation is that it allows the voices and ideas of people from diverse backgrounds and with different points of interest to be heard and to be acted on.
CSI’s hope for the Social Impact magazine is that all who wish to make a significant contribution to a conversation on social change and social impact can do so; and that all who want to take action, be part of a drive for a just and sustainable society, and create social impact will be inspired and better able to do so because of the magazine.
To create an authentic discussion around social change, it was important from the magazine’s inception that the design should be approachable, inclusive, and with universal design at its heart. The theme of the magazine is based on the six Nyoongar seasons, with the current edition highlighting Makuru, representing the season of fertility from June-July.
The edition is also centred around the Letter from the Future which was written during the 2018 Social Impact Summit, by over 400 attendees and thought leaders. It is a letter written from the people of 2028 back to the people of 2018. Quotes from the letter are dispersed throughout the publication creating a moment to pause and reflect while tying the articles together with a continued theme.
