Join us as we break into smaller groups and take a deeper dive into the themes of our plenary session. We will question the role of philanthropy in imagining and implementing new and innovative economic models that serve society and the environment better and discuss how a stronger Philanthropy Support Ecosystem can make it easier for organisations to promote sustainable economic models.
