The European Foundation Centre’s 24th Annual General Assembly and conference kicks off in just two weeks. Alliance is preparing to coordinate an international blogging effort so that as many people as possible are able to hear about what is discussed at the conference.
This year, the EFC conference will have a special focus on Sustainable cities: Foundations and our urban future. The conference will take place at the Bella Center in Copenhagen from Thursday 30 May – Saturday 1 June.
We will be featuring reports, photos and videos from the conference on this blog both during the event and in the following days. Our aim is to give a rounded view of the major topics and themes that are discussed, with members of our international team of bloggers each reporting from different sessions. Confirmed bloggers include:
- John Harvey, Council on Foundations
- Jenny Hodgson, Global Fund for Community Foundations
- Halima Mahomed, TrustAfrica
- Chandrika Sahai, Philanthropy for Social Justice and Peace Network
- Ise Bosch, Dreilinden gGmbH
- Paul Evans, Barrow Cadbury Trust
- Albert Ruesga, Greater New Orleans Foundation
We would also love to hear comments from others who have attended the conference, so please visit the blog often and add your voice to the discussions.
Those who are unable to attend the conference can also follow the event on twitter using the hashtag #AGA24. Make sure you are following @alliancemag to receive our updates and links to blog posts. If you plan to tweet from the conference, let us know and we will be sure to look out for your updates.
For those of you who are attending the conference, look out for your complimentary copy of Alliance magazine in your delegate bag.
