Giving Green Workshops

In 2015 we will continue our workshop series associated with the Giving Green guide. The workshops are suited to both new and experienced environmental funders, with tailored sessions for professional grantmakers and members of the next generation of giving.

The workshop series kicks off with an introduction to environmental grantmaking, and is followed by a deeper look at each of the nine environmental themes. The issues covered in the series will complement learning on AEGN field trips. Expert speakers provide an easy-to-understand, but detailed, look at each of the issues. Workshop participants will be provided with briefing notes written by experts in the field; fact sheets on the level of philanthropic funding going to each of the issues; and an overview of the not-for-profit organisation’s working in each issue area.

The series will conclude with a recap of the material covered during the issues series and consolidation of learnings.

AEGN members and friends can attend one, some or all of the workshops, and attendance is free for members. However, registration is essential.

The Introduction for Next Gen workshop will provide an introduction to environmental grantmaking, aimed specifically at next generation funders.

The Introduction For Professional Grantmakers workshop is targeted at staff of Trusts, Foundations and PAFs. The workshop assumes a base knowledge of grant assessment and due diligence, and will focus on providing a greater knowledge of key environmental issues, as well as how to achieve change in the area of environmental philanthropy.
