Active Philanthropy and DAFNE, the Donors and Foundations Networks in Europe, are delighted to invite you to an interactive Peer Learning Session.
We are welcoming Marie-Stéphane Maradeix, Executive Director, and Mathilde Douillet, Programme Officer, Sustainable Food Systems at the Fondation Daniel & Nina Carasso.
From its beginnings in 2010, the family foundation, that was established in memory of Danone founder Daniel Carasso and his wife Nina, has been promoting sustainable food and access to the arts, in France and Spain. Following a process to realign the foundation’s work under a common vision of a more sustainable, just and equitable world, the foundation has incorporated climate-related issues throughout their programmes, one of the focus areas being the transition to agro-ecological practices. The foundation has also decarbonised its investments and places a share of its capital into climate-related impact investments.
Marie-Stéphane Maradeix and Mathilde Douillet will share the foundation’s journey and experience in climate action and discuss insights and learnings that could be useful for foundations interested to get started in climate philanthropy. They will explain how the foundation has anchored climate in its overarching strategy and address the particular role that food systems have in combating climate change.
Following a short input by the protagonists, this session will provide ample room for your questions and an interactive discussion. The number of participants will therefore be limited to 50 people*.
*As seats are very limited, we kindly ask you to only register one person per organisation.
