During this session, we collectively explored how philanthropy impacts biodiversity and how it can rebalance its power structures to become more inclusive and generate better outcomes for nature and people.
We also shared our recently published collaborative inquiry The Future of Philanthropy and Biodiversity: perspectives and pathways which surfaces key questions and perspectives from a diversity of authors, and not only examines emerging models and paradigms regarding grantors and grantees, but also looks at areas where the sector should most urgently focus its self-reflection and transformation efforts.
