With 50+ speakers and over 1000 attendees, Joseph Rowntree Foundation alongside parters including the Institute, will bring together innovators and changemakers across the philanthropic and investment worlds, to learn from one another, make new connections and discover ways we can influence greater change, together.
The conference will explore approaches in investment and philanthropy that are actively challenging practices that prop up aspects of current systems that are not serving people and the planet well. It will highlight financing and funding practices that have the potential to invest in – and even speed up – a transition towards a regenerative, fairer future. It will platform people who are thinking deeply about the edges of practice and thinking: new vehicles for building economic democracy, post-endowment philanthropy, and who are looking for ways to influence where resources flow in the Great Wealth Transfer. We are explicit that a commitment to doing radical and ambitious work needs to be as accountable to transformative, liberatory and system-shifting intentions, as it is to equity and justice.
Conference partners include: Lankelly Chase, ThirtyPercy, Guy’s and St Thomas’s Foundation, Be The Earth, Good Ancestor Movement, Blagrave Trust and the Impact Investing Institute. Resource Transformation will also be joining us for the co-design sessions.
