Event description

Description



Environment Funders Canada warmly invites members and other philanthropic funders to join our 2020 Conference which will take place in Kelowna B.C. the week of May 25th. While the reality of negative environmental impacts in Canada and around the globe are clearly evident, we are opting for a solutions focus for the 2020 conference program. What’s working and why? How are funders engaging with new solutions? How can solutions be scaled up? How are Indigenous and other local communities, as well as the broader natural world, poised to thrive as a result?

Our motivation is to provide the philanthropic community with networking opportunities and knowledge sharing that focus on promising solutions that funders can be instrumental in advancing.

The conference program is evolving but we are honing in on the following themes, with speakers and sessions to be confirmed in the following weeks:

· Natural Climate Solutions

· Technological Solutions for Environmental Challenges

· Transition Solutions for a Low Carbon Future

· Transformative Financial Approaches for Sustainability

· Innovative Funding and Evaluation Practices.

The conference is guided by a strong Advisory Committee and chaired by James Littley of the Okanagan Basin Water Board. Details on the conference program will be posted as they are confirmed.

Environment Funders Canada’s commitment to reconciliation, inclusive communities and a future that is good for people, planet and place will underpin the planning and delivery of all of the conference programming. We are also taking tangible steps to address the carbon footprint of our conference.

Details on the conference program will be posted as they are confirmed, with the conference running from 4 p.m. on Tuesday, May 26th through 4 p.m. on Thursday, May 28th.

The early bird deadline for conference registration is end of day Friday April 17th, 2020. Leadership members receive one (1) free conference ticket and Champion members receive two (2) free conference tickets.
