GPF is going virtual!
In light of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Global Philanthropy Forum conference is transitioning into a virtual event. While this will be a new experience for all of us, we are energized by the possibilities a virtual event brings—one not limited by travel restrictions or resources. Further, as we engage one another and share learnings around the critical issue of climate change, we can do so while knowing our carbon footprints are small.
While we see many positives to moving online, when it comes to networking and relationship building, we know nothing beats face-to-face interaction. The GPF team is committed to bringing you creative and engaging ways to connect, even if we can’t do so in person.
The conference will take place from September 14 to 16 as planned with sessions from 8am to 12pm Pacific Daylight Time. We are also planning a summer webinar series leading up to the conference. At GPF 2020 we will seek ways to harness the power of philanthropy to beta test big ideas and innovations in policy, society, science, finance and technology to find solutions that address climate change. In this moment where people are increasingly coming together to demand change, we will explore the ways that philanthropy can take the lead in building a better tomorrow.
The GPF community is a creative and resilient one. We look forward to gathering with you in the fall to take on one of the greatest challenges of our time and one that can only be solved by coming together.
In continued hopes you are staying safe and healthy,
-The GPF Team
Over the last three years, the Global Philanthropy Forum focused on the things driving us apart: the pervasive loss of trust, the rise of illiberal democracies, the pressures of globalization. In 2020 we will turn our attention to a critical global problem that challenges us all but that can only be solved by coming together – climate change.
At the 2020 GPF conference we will seek ways to harness the power of philanthropy to beta test big ideas and innovations in policy, society, science, technology, financing and humanitarian aid to find solutions that address the challenge of climate change and help us build a better tomorrow.
Registration is now open and attendance is $75. If you have any questions, please contact [email protected]
