‘How to do good’ is a collection of extraordinary personal stories from thought leaders, celebrities, statesmen and women, Nobel Prize winners, social entrepreneurs, philanthropists and others driving and inspiring positive change.
Each of our wide range of contributors is making a positive difference in today’s challenged world: from European and Middle Eastern royalty, to a former US president who commands international respect, to one half of the world’s wealthiest couple and its highest-profile advocates for effective philanthropy.
Our writers are Hollywood icons, and also the heads of some of the world’s largest foundations and humanitarian bodies. They are successful businesspeople and dynamic social entrepreneurs. They are everyday people doing truly extraordinary things. Taken together, these exclusive essays and interviews show us all what can be achieved given vision and determination.
In celebration of the launch of ‘How to do good’, Philanthropy Age completed a series of challenging and inspirational discussions on philanthropy during 2017. At events across Europe – and a final date in New York – speakers ranging from Dr Joanne Liu of Médecins Sans Frontières, to tech entrepreneur and philanthropist Alexandre Mars, to Jan Egeland, secretary general of the Norwegian Refugee Council debated how philanthropy could help address the most pressing issues of our time.
A fresh series of discussions will be launched later in 2019, and information will be shared here.
