SAN FRANCISCO, Apr. 16 /CSRwire/ - Over three days in April, the Global Philanthropy Forum (GPF) will convene a “Who’s Who” of philanthropists, foundation leaders and social investors from across the U.S, Europe, and several of the world’s most dynamic emerging markets to exchange best practices and key learnings on approaches to combat poverty and meet ambitious new development goals.
The invitation-only event, which takes place April 23-25 in Redwood City, CA, will focus on collaborative efforts between governments and citizen innovators from the private and social sectors to bring to life this year’s theme, “Global Goals, Citizen Solutions.” Attendees will have the opportunity to learn how philanthropy is at the heart of partnerships that leverage each sector’s strengths, and will hear how public, private and social actors are beginning to redefine leadership, philanthropy, value and development.
The event will combine plenaries and working groups that will be split into three different tracks: People, Planet and Philanthropy. Sessions will feature philanthropy innovators, heads of state and business leaders. Highlights include:
