The Fourth Annual International Conference on Philanthropy took place in Athens on June 25th and 26th, 2015. The two-day conference explored the issue of “Philanthropy and Sustainability”.
The goal of this year’s conference was to examine and debate philanthropy’s efforts to help address sustainability issues, but also to inquire about the use of sustainability practices in informing sustainable philanthropic thinking and action. We aimed to assess and discuss philanthropy’s role in attaining a sustainable society. At the same time, the conference also focused on how we go about achieving sustainable philanthropic engagement, emphasizing efforts to accomplish sustainable education, health, and artistic commitment, as well as sustainable social welfare.
