Project details

The world of philanthropy is experiencing profound changes.

Professionalization, transparency and governance are some of the increasing demands which philanthropists and representatives of foundations face on a daily basis.

The rapid growth of this sector and the increasing interconnectedness bring with them a new dynamic. New forms of philanthropy and innovative models of cooperation between public utility organizations, governments, companies invested a social responsibility and politics are central to the discussion. The reflection on the "added value of the philanthropic sector" and the effectiveness of philanthropic activities are relevant today.

Who are the new actors involved in promoting civil society? What are the potential synergistic new models of cooperation? How much creativity are philanthropists and foundations showing when it comes to finding solutions to social challenges? How do they apply ethics and responsibility?
