National Conference: "What Does the Future Need from Us, Now?"
21-22 April 2021
Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre (MCEC)
These are uncertain times. The world and our global society are changing dramatically and standing still is simply not an option. We don’t yet know what lies ahead, but we do know that the future is our judge.
The effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic will be long-lasting and it’s critical that philanthropy comes together once we are through the first response and containment of this crisis. It is hoped that April 2021 will be a good time to gather together, re-connect, share learnings, experiences and best-practice approaches to support the new environment and long-term recovery.
Themed ‘What does the future need from us, now?’, the conference program will focus on what Australia and our global future needs from philanthropy. It will unpack and debate the future needs of our society and the role of philanthropy in addressing these challenges.
Over two jam-packed days, the conference will challenge, inspire and provoke thinking by probing how attitudes, approach and practice must evolve to remain accountable to the future.
