About the event
Two grant-making foundations, City Bridge Trust and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (UK Branch), have joined forces to convene a group of policymakers, not-for-profits and other funders for a day of discovery and exchange highlighting the importance of the green economy and its role in economic recovery. We hope that the conference will connect large with small organisations, thinkers with doers, and national policy with grassroots practice.
The day will highlight the role that new networks, fresh ideas, and innovative local organisations can play in tackling pressing environmental, economic and social issues. It will demonstrate the place of a greener economy in building social and emotional as well as economic capital, and the value of collaborative approaches in addressing some of society’s most complex problems.
Take a look at our conference highlights here, which includes a short blog, videos and a photo gallery of the Growing Prosperity Conference.
