John Hopkins International Philanthropy Conference

‘Communities, Capital and Collaboration – The Role of the Third Sector in Strengthening Communities in Australia’
Australia has been chosen to host the 12th Annual John Hopkins International Fellows in Philanthropy Conference in Melbourne this month.
The Centre for Civil Society Studies is a leading international centre for research and training in philanthropy based at the John Hopkins University in the US, and each year current and former academics are invited to meet for a Fellows Conference.
Previously the Conference has been held in Poland, France, Ghana, Israel, Mexico, Russia and India.
The purpose of this year’s Conference is to shine a light on the role of grant makers, Not for Profit organisations and social researchers in their funding and collaboration with communities.
One of the key issues will be how to be effective considering the changing nature of communities, the shifting roles of government and corporations, the impact of globalisation, and the availability of new and powerful technologies.
The Conference will run over three days from July 24th at the Hilton Hotel and the YWCA and will include invited speakers such as Dr. Lester Salamon from the John Hopkins University, Sir Gustav Nossal, Richard Pratt and Graeme Wise from The Body Shop.
