EFC European Environmental Funders Group Spring Meeting – Philanthropy and the Global Commons: environmental challenges and opportunities
The EFC’s European Environmental Funders Group (EEFG) will dive into ”Philanthropy and the Global Commons: environmental challenges and opportunities” at its Spring Meeting 2020, taking place in Gland, Switzerland, on 31 March to 1 April, hosted by the MAVA Foundation and Oak Foundation.
The meeting promises to be an exciting and dynamic meeting full of opportunities for sharing knowledge, learning and networking for European philanthropic organisations working in the environmental sector. It will be a unique occasion for attendees to get more acquainted with the Swiss philanthropic sector and discuss the environmental challenges and opportunities related to the Global Commons.
The gathering will provide a space to debate the opportunities and challenges of the Global Commons, as well as existing and as yet un-imagined avenues for philanthropy to deepen its engagement in the transition to a net-zero emission economy. The meeting will also feature a site visit to a Swiss forest to be inspired, experience and discuss local approaches and challenges related to the protection of the Global Commons: water, biodiversity and climate.
