"Why not consider philanthropy as a lab in which we can learn from our mistakes and advance our work by working together on a profound level with partners and grantees? ...A true civic-philanthropic collaboration… Is it that difficult to imagine?"
Read the full essay Philanthropy needs imagination by our Knowledge Manager Vivian Paulissen from the new book Communities of Practice Towards Social Change.
Between 2014 and 2017, we organised three editions of the Idea Camp together with our partners from the Connected Action for the Commons Network.
The new book Communities of Practice Towards Social Change offers an insight into the concept of the Idea Camp and the communities it has brought together.
