The ‘Emerging Societies – Emerging Philanthropies’ International Forum is a unique invitation-only event, which will bring together leading philanthropy practitioners from Brazil, China, India, Mexico, Russia, Turkey, Ukraine, and the South East Asian, African and Arab regions. The overall goal of the forum is to stimulate mutual learning and debate among philanthropists and foundation practitioners, and to provide a platform for future cooperation and peer exchange.
The forum will host the founders and directors of philanthropic foundations and institutions, be they private, corporate or community-based, as well as major philanthropists. Numbers are strictly limited to no more than 100 people, with a maximum of 8-10 participants from each country or region.
The forum will provide opportunities for informal gatherings and interactive discussions among participants. Over the course of two days, debate will take place on themes such as: how social change is understood and could be achieved in emerging societies; where relations between governments and philanthropists could lead; how challenge of sustaining philanthropy beyond first generations of donors are met in different giving cultures and how philanthropic values are communicated in different societies.
