Hosted by the Funders’ Network in partnership with the The San Diego Foundation
Registration is now open for the GREEN! working group’s Annual Meeting in San Diego, Calif., October 24-26, 2017. TFN is very excited to be holding this year’s annual gathering in in one of the most beautiful, sustainable, and fast growing cities in the country. And, for the first time ever, our meeting is being held in tandem with the Urban Sustainability Directors Network’s annual meeting, with GREEN! working group funders invited to join in USDN tours (site visits) on Tuesday afternoon and a joint reception hosted by USDN and TFN on Tuesday evening.
The agenda will be designed to reinforce the important role that the philanthropic community plays in advancing sustainability, climate mitigation, urban resilience, and next generation infrastructure, with plenty of time to network and learn from peers. Funders also will have an opportunity to learn firsthand from community, regional and state policy experts about the many ways that California is exercising leadership on climate, water stewardship, and sustainability. The agenda will include a strong focus on ways that California and other regions of the country are supporting an ambitious and absolutely essential transformation from a fossil fuel-based economy to renewables and clean energy.
The meeting is being planned by funders for funders, and will include multiple opportunities to learn from place and from peers. We welcome participation by all interested funders in this convening.View the draft agenda here
