April 4, 2018

Philanthropy Australia presents and informative thought leadership forum where David Carrington will present a ‘state of the nation’ overview of the latest thinking around the current role and best future of philanthropy.

The thought leadership event aims to challenge, inspire and provoke thinking over a broad range of topics including:

  • What can philanthropy contribute to solving intractable ‘wicked’ problems like poverty or climate change?
  • Accountability – what are the responsibilities of private wealth as it seeks to resource public good?
  • Advocacy – should philanthropy be bolder in expressing political points of view, helping preserve civic space, funding social movements?
  • What more can philanthropy do to ensure the sustainable health of the NFP charitable sector?
  • What is philanthropy doing well, and what do we need to do better?

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from a leader in the global philanthropic sector and contribute to the discussion.

Where: Brisbane, QLD

When: Wed 18th Apr 2018, 10:00 – 12:00 (2 hours)
