Conference 2020

Tuesday 17 March 2:00 pm to Wednesday 18 March 6:30 pm

AMPLIFY AND CONNECT: Philanthropy engaging community and business

We are at an unprecedented time in history. Climate crisis and biodiversity collapse threaten our very future yet are often sidelined as ‘green’ concerns. How can philanthropy help extend beyond the persuaded to energise action in our broader communities and businesses?

Join us at the Sydney Opera House for an inspirational summit.


Tuesday 17 March 2020

2.00pm to 4.00pm — impact investment workshop
6.00pm — drinks

Wednesday 18 March 2020

8.30am to 6.30pm — conference


Professor Ross Garnaut AC

“The fog of Australian politics on climate change has obscured a fateful reality: Australia has the potential to be an economic superpower of the future post-carbon world.” — Ross Garnaut

Hear Professor Garnaut talk us through how Australia can achieve economic superpower status by harnessing our natural systems, people power and scientific skills.

AMPLIFY AND CONNECT: Philanthropy engaging community and business will consider the key constituencies that need to be part of the movement for change — business and prominent social sectors, rural and regional communities — and explore pathways to change.

Speakers — including innovative funders, environmental leaders and early stage organisations — will explore the roles of business, community and philanthropy as well as opportunities for new approaches.

Come along, connect and collaborate with your fellow AEGN members and friends. Learn and share how philanthropy, leadership and influence can drive positive change for the future of our planet.

Conference showcase

Once again, five members will showcase an environmental funding opportunity at our annual conference. Would you like to present in the showcase?

We are looking to showcase organisations or initiatives that are not the usual suspects. If you have an organisation or initiative that meets one of the criteria, we would like to receive your proposal.
