15-17 June, 2012

* European network convened in London *
#NexusLondon: Bringing together young investors and social entrepreneurs

Nearly one hundred young philanthropists, social entrepreneurs, potential investors and allies gathered in London from 15 to 17 June, 2012 for the Nexus Europe Youth Summit in an effort to network young change-makers and transform philanthropy.

The Nexus Europe Youth Summit, the European offshoot of the global program, helped create a more engaged and connected learning community for philanthropy, and sought to inspire greater generosity as a result.

The London event was convened by nomination and invitation only, and was capped at 100 people. Together the participants explored the common visions that young Europeans have for their generation, and engaged in conversations about innovative ways to use wealth and privilege to improve the world.
