Financing the transition towards a fairer future

About this event

New Frontiers in Funding, Philanthropy and Investment

Join us for these hybrid sessions as part of the wider conference, and let's open up a conversation about re-imagining our future.

So what's going on?

A 2-day live-streamed conference bringing together innovators across the philanthropic and investment worlds, to learn from one another and make new connections. We want to explore approaches in investment and philanthropy that are actively challenging practices that prop up aspects of current systems that are not serving people and planet well. And we want to highlight financing and funding practices that have the potential to invest in - and even speed up - a transition towards a regenerative, fairer future.

How do I join online?

The sessions will be held on Zoom and a link will be sent our to registrants in the lead up to the event - you'll get some reminders as we get nearer the time.
