The EDGE conference is part of the “Change Funders Week” 2020, which we organise for the first time in collaboration with Ariadne (European Funders for Social Change and Human Rights), the Association of German Foundations and Open Society Foundations through their new Berlin office. 

This unique collaboration will raise the profile of philanthropy committed to social and systemic change, in the spirit of the recently signed MoU between Ariadne and EDGE.

We hope that you’ll join us for a week of conversations, workshops and learning with like-minded peers committed to influencing discussions and practices in the philanthropic sector towards systemic and social change.
