On December 9th & 10th, 2016, a group of nearly 40 people representing diverse segments of global philanthropy came together at the Auburn Seminary in New York City to explore:
1. UN WEEK: Convening a September 2017 conference on global philanthropy during UN week, stepping into the void left by the departure of the Clinton Global Initiative annual meeting.
2. TWO ISSUES: Collaborating to address two of the greatest problems of our time: The Conflict in Syria and the Destruction of the Amazon.
3. LOCAL LEVELS: Examining opportunities for cross-network collaboration and follow up convenings at local levels around the world.
4. PHILANTHROPIC LANDSCAPE: Strengthening the current landscape of global philanthropy.
