7th SNF International Conference on Philanthropy

 

The 7th SNF International Conference on Philanthropy will explore one of the most discussed and debated concepts of our times, that of Disruption. The 21st Century is quickly evolving into an era defined by global disruption, as socioeconomic changes and groundbreaking technological advancements are seemingly having a major impact and are turning upside down standard modes of operation, models and assumptions in every area of life, including the field of philanthropy.

The conference will examine, among others, the effects that pervasive inequality has in disrupting social cohesion both in economic terms as well as due to the unequal access to opportunities, education and those factors that facilitate social mobility. On the other hand, the conference will present those who through their groundbreaking work attempt to disrupt this cycle of inequality and bring about change both on a local and global level. Drawing from the Foundation’s global network of partners, we are trying to team up with experts and leaders in their respective fields, to pose difficult questions, deconstruct and explore in depth the meaning and consequences of the ubiquitously used and often misunderstood notion of disruption.

Participation to the SNF Conference on Philanthropy is free and is secured via electronic pre-registration. To register, please complete the online form available here.
