EFC Annual Conference: Imagining and Investing in our Future

  • Muziekgebouw aan't IJ 1 Piet Heinkade Amsterdam, NH, 1019 BR Netherlands (map)

Taking place during the Netherlands’ Presidency of the EU, the European Foundation Centre’s 27th Annual General Assembly and Conference will convene more than 750 philanthropic leaders and representatives from INGOs, academia and policymakers in Amsterdam in May.

The conference will engage a diverse array of philanthropic actors to find solutions to the most urgent issues within Europe and around the world. In particular, delegates will get to grips with how inequality is in many ways the key challenge when ‘imagining our futures’ and how it undermines our responses to the other global challenges we face.

Keynote speakers include Her Royal Highness Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands, Chair of the European Cultural Foundation and UNESCO Special Envoy on Literacy for Development, Mark Rutte, Prime Minister of the Netherlands, and Kristalina Georgieva, Vice-President for Budget and Human Resources, European Commission.
