Global Partnerships, Local Impacts: Access to basic needs for vulnerable populations
This conference organized by Nexus-Carbon for Development will take place on 12th July 2013 from 8.30am – 7pm at the Matrix @ Biopolis in Singapore.
How can private sector funding best meet the needs of clean development entrepreneurs? What lessons can be learnt from new initiatives such as crowd-funding or customer/staff engagement platforms? The event will bring together project developers, private sector donors (corporations and individuals) and crowd-funding organizations to share lessons about successful global-local partnerships and connect promising projects with private sector companies.
Speakers include representatives from Deutsche Post DHL, Accor, Milaap, and much more (see agenda here). The speed networking session, facilitated by the Facilitators Network Singapore, will connect private companies with projects fighting both climate change and poverty. The event will be followed by a cocktail.
