Philanthropy Meets Parliament Summit

Where: Canberra, ACT

When: Mon 11th Sep 2017 to Tue 12th Sep 2017 (2 days)

The Philanthropy Meets Parliament Summit brings together Australian funders, political leaders, and policy makers to meet at the heart of Australia’s political system.

It is a unique event which helps philanthropy and government understand each other’s perspectives and priorities and how they can work together to achieve shared objectives.

Given the changes we’re witnessing in democracies around the world, which was particularly apparent in 2016, this year’s event will also examine what these changes mean for philanthropy and its role as a catalyst for social change.

  • Day 1 (Monday 11 September) will be held at Parliament House, Canberra, and involve a combination of keynote addresses and interactive panel discussions, with plenty of time to mingle and network.
  • Day 2 (Tuesday 12 September) will be held at another location in Canberra, with a focus on philanthropy and its role supporting advocacy.

The full program will be released in the coming months, but for now – save the date in your diary.
