Homelessness is a global problem that affects around 100 million citizens worldwide.
Invisible People in 2019 is a public conference that brings together entrepreneurs, social workers, policy makers from two opposite sides of the globe – Scotland and Los Angeles, United States – to share their experiences with everyone interested in finding out more on how to tackle this humanitarian emergency in the 21st century.
We will also hear the stories told by our own once invisible people. By spreading the word, learning and getting involved, we can get closer to achieving higher social security and happiness.
