Guest editor for this Alliance special feature is Olga Alexeeva of CAF Global Trustees. The centre of philanthropy is increasingly shifting from north and west to south and east, says Alexeeva, but what will this emerging philanthropy look like? What will be its objectives and values? Giving because it’s fashionable will not be good enough if you want to make real changes in the world, she says.
This special feature includes interviews with donors from all corners of the world: Chinese actor and martial arts expert Jet Li; Ukrainian actress Olga Kurylenko; Russian actress Chulpan Khamatova and foundation leader Irina Prokhorova; Rishi Khosla from India; Nabil Qaddumi from the Middle East; Regina Vidigal Guarita from Brazil; Sigrid Rausing and Jacqueline Delia-Brémond from Europe. Finally, Peter Karoff reflects on all the contributions to what he calls this ‘dangerous and radical’ issue of Alliance.
Also included in the December issue of Alliance: the Alliance essay prize winner, ‘The key is coal’ by Paul Growald, Eileen R Growald and Joanna Messing plus more articles, opinion, reviews, letters, and global updates.
