Australian Centre for Rural Entrepreneurship in partnership with Social Traders present Social Procurement in Wodonga – the principles of social procurement and the impact its growth can have in the region.

- Principles behind social enterprise and social procurement
- Victorian government’s Social Procurement Framework, and its impact on Gippsland’s social enterprises, businesses and not-for-profit organisations
