With the resources of both governments and traditional philanthropy barely growing or in decline and the problems of poverty, ill-health and environmental degradation ballooning daily, it is increasingly clear that new models for ﬁnancing and promoting social and environmental objectives are urgently needed. Fortunately, a significant revolution appears to be underway on the frontiers of philanthropy and social investing that is providing at least a partial response to this dilemma.
In this Seminar, the speakers will discuss the new actors and new tools that form the heart of this revolution and demonstrate how these elements are reshaping the way we go about supporting solutions to social and environmental problems throughout the world.
This Philanthropy for Better Cities Forum post conference seminar is hosted by the HKU-HKJC ExCEL3 Project.
