Philanthropy & the SDGs

The EFC is supporting the Philanthropy & the SDGs special event, co-organised by the Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN-DESA) and the United Nations Office for Partnerships (UNOP) on 16th July, 2019 during the Ministerial Segment of the 2019 High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development under the auspices of the ECOSOC in New York.

The event will create a dedicated space to discuss current models of philanthropic engagement to implement the 2030 Agenda and identify opportunities to scale up philanthropic leadership and transformational action to further accelerate SDG implementation. The event will also serve as an opportunity to gather momentum from the philanthropic sector in the lead up to the SDG Summit in September 2019, where Heads of State and Government will meet for the first time under the auspices of the General Assembly after the first four-year cycle of HLPF to assess progress in SDG implementation.

The EFC’s Chair, Massimo Lapucci will be representing the EFC at the event.

The EFC is collaborating alongside the SDG Philanthropy Platform (through the Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors), Synergos and the United Nations Foundation to support the UN-DESA and UNOP special event.

This event is by registration only.
