Strategic Philanthropy, tools & approaches to create value in a complex world
PLENARY SESSION 10.00 – 13.00
Strategic Philanthropy, tools & approaches to create value in a complex world. Trends show how the generalized “welfare state” in the social context is no longer sustainable. We are witnessing a substantial convergence between philanthropic models of interventions and investments able to produce both economic and social returns. Hence the necessity to develop effective action modalities: the “new philanthropy” is diversified, global, collaborative, more entrepreneurial and eager of impact measurements with an attitude towards sustainable investment. Through the presentation of realized initiatives, the session will discuss the role of foundations, finance and family businesses in the generation of meaningful and sustainable interventions to the benefit of the community.
Networking Lunch with the possibility of visiting the Tiepolo’s “Galleria degli Arazzi”
