Description

YOU ARE INVITED TO AEGN’S 2018 CONFERENCE IN SYDNEY!
The green economy is at our doorstep with the promise of delivering unimaginable benefits for the climate and biodiversity, forests and food systems, inland water and oceans. But there are also headwinds at play – corporate, political and economic – which will impact the way our green economy develops and the benefits for our environment. This year’s AEGN conference will ask:

  • What is the state of Australia’s green economy?
  • How can philanthropy influence, energise and invest in the green economy?
  • Why is philanthropy needed and what are the best ideas and opportunities?
  • Who are the experts, leaders and fellow-funders to collaborate with?
