Agustín Landa, the founder of LANZA, a consultancy focused on social initiatives based in Mexico, joined the Alliance magazine team as Regional Representative for Latin America earlier this year.
Based in Mexico, Landa brings a wealth of localised philanthropy knowledge about Latin American philanthropy that is helping Alliance globalise its coverage and raise the profile of philanthropy in a part of the world where it receives less coverage.
‘My personal expectation has been that the world – and especially the world philanthropic community – could have a better understanding of and engagement with the opportunities, capabilities, and willingness of the Latam civil society to contribute to a better world,’ said Landa.
‘I feel that the Latam Civil Society had not been represented enough in the Global North and hasn’t shown the possibilities and importance it has… What I see as my role is to connect, disseminate, and create opportunities to link the capabilities, innovation, and opportunities among the civil society of LATAM and the rest of the world.’
