SOCAP Pro Tip: Start Networking Before the Conference
SOCAP is filled with valuable strangers – people you haven’t met yet, but who share your vision for change and offer skills and assets that could be catalytic for your work. The conversations that take place at the picnic tables and meeting spaces at Fort Mason transform strangers into allies and collaborators. Many such alliances formed at SOCAP have already led to better outcomes for people, communities, and the planet.
The good news is you don’t have to wait until the conference to begin those conversations. Get started with these pre-SOCAP networking tips.

How You Can Reduce Your Carbon Footprint: Conferences, Travel, and Climate Change
SOCAP convenes investors, innovators, and entrepreneurs committed to addressing a host of social environmental challenges, including climate change. And yet, in convening we create a calculated 2,800 metric tons of C02 that contributes to the very problem we’re trying to address. Now, for the first time, event ticket holders can help reduce the environmental impact of the conference by booking with TripZero, a Certified B-Corp travel agency that measures and offsets the carbon footprint created by your trip—at no additional cost to you.
Read our conversation with SOCAP’s Production Manager, Diana Connolly, an expert in green event planning, and TripZero Founder Eric Zimmerman to talk about climate change, carbon offsets, and the steps they are taking to make SOCAP16 our greenest event ever.
