Vision 2020: Sights on Solutions

May 26-28, 2020

Manteo Resort Waterfront Hotel and Villas

Kelowna, BC

Environment Funders Canada warmly invites members and other philanthropic funders to join our 2020 Conference, which will take place in Kelowna B.C.  the week of May 25th. While the reality of negative environmental impacts in Canada and around the globe are clearly evident, we are opting for a solutions focus for the 2020 conference program. What’s working and why? How are funders engaging with new solutions? How can solutions be scaled up? How are Indigenous and other local communities, as well as the broader natural world, poised to thrive as a result?

Our motivation is to provide the philanthropic community with networking opportunities and knowledge sharing that focus on promising solutions that funders can be instrumental in advancing.

The Conference Program will be available soon, but we are honing in on the following themes, with speakers and sessions to be confirmed in the following weeks:

·       Natural Climate Solutions

·       Technological Solutions for Environmental Challenges

·       Transition Solutions for a Low Carbon Economy

·       Transformative Financial Approaches for Sustainability

·       Innovative Funding and Evaluation Practices.

The 2020 Environment Funders Conference will take place at the Manteo Resort in Kelowna, BC. We are fortunate to be gathering on the land which is the unceded territory of the Syilx Okanagan Nation and the home of Westbank First Nation.
