Funding the Future: How the climate crisis intersects with your giving

Active Philanthropy Funding the future webinar 2020

Climate change is already visible, and will impact the work of foundations on many levels. Funders have a unique role in helping shift our economic and financial systems to enable greater resilience and wellbeing. But so far, less than 2% of philanthropic giving is dedicated to climate change. How can foundations and philanthropists enhance their role in fighting the climate crisis? And how can funders add a climate lens to their existing portfolios?

Active Philanthropy
and Dafne, the Donors and Foundations Network in Europe, are delighted to invite you to an exclusive virtual discussion on the climate philanthropy guide “Funding the Future” compiled by Active Philanthropy.

Sandrine Dixon-Declève, Co-President of the Club of Rome will be the keynote speaker. She will share her personal insights on the near term pressure points necessary to ensure a transition towards greater resilience, wellbeing and planetary sustainability. Following a brief introduction of the guide by the lead-author Dr. Johannes Lundershausen, three prominent foundations will highlight what they do to combat the climate crisis, and how they managed to incorporate climate-related topics into their portfolio.

Panelists:

  • Sonia Medina, Executive Director Climate Change, Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF)
  • George Kabalt, Special Advisor (Climate), Laudes Foundation & Porticus
  • Marie-Stéphane Maradeix, Executive Director, Fondation Daniel & Nina Carasso
