The 6th Annual

Friday September 20th, 2024 | Edmonton Convention Center

The theme for the 6th annual ICChange gala event is Clear Waters, Clear Futures. Water insecurity is a worldwide issue ongoing despite years of attention by the global health establishment. Our social enterprise, CeraMaji, has innovated the field with a fresh perspective on low-cost water filtration technology and creative business models. Our work on water security has shown us how it is a barometer for the health of the world, having substantial consequences on economic disparity, climate deterioration, and healthcare inequality. Just as perspective has allowed our work to flow into new areas, allow us to broaden your perspectives on these complex, interconnected issues and how to address them.

The 5th Annual




September 15, 2023 | Royal Glenora Club, Edmonton

The theme for the 2023 ICChange Gala was Renewing the Future. With the world facing increasingly complex challenges, such climate change, rising disparity, accessing healthcare, and food insecurity, new perspectives and approaches are crucially needed to address these challenges. ICChange focuses on creating and implementing system level solutions, embracing complexity, leveraging collaboration and innovation to create a better tomorrow.  

The event showcased ICChange’s initiatives, shared stories of impact, inspired and energized attendees to support this work and build the future we need.

The event featured a life-sized "slum house" carefully constructed by ICChange for guests to experience the living conditions of people living in urban informal settlements in Africa and Asia.
