Engagement Labs are for collective strategizing on moving philanthropy to support deeper systemic change within a sector or area of work.
This year, engagement labs will be organised around the following themes:
‣ The limits of growth: from extractivism to regeneration
‣ The future of work: building new economies
‣ The Commons and open democracy
‣ New narratives for systems change
‣ Ethical investment: capital as a lever for change
‣ New philanthropy: challenging power and privilege
‣ Movement building in times of far-right populism
Action Labs are for those who wish to develop concrete collaborations, i.e. determining next steps for moving forward with a collective initiative developed or discussed during an Engagement Lab.
Workshops are for sharing, to exchange and deepen knowledge especially around content (projects, initiatives, networks, perspectives).
Descriptions of a dozen or so workshops being organised by funders and their allies will be available soon.
Walking tours are topical workshops including a visit to an initiative in walking distance of the venue.
Community meetings are visits of movement initiatives and discussions with local activists in or around Barcelona, possibly including bus travel.
Descriptions of the community meetings being organised by the host committee with local organisations will be available soon.
Dine Arounds are informal conversations over dinner around a particular topic, organized by and sponsored by an individual or group of funders.
Ad Hoc Meetings are for more informal conversations organized spontaneously around issues that emerge during the conference.
