The first NewGen Council took place in Geneva from 19 to 21 February 2016. Organised by Swiss Philanthropy and WISE Philanthropy advisors, the event brought together 20 “NewGen” philanthropists aged 25 to 35 from around the world. The question of how to facilitate the younger generation’s vision and involvement was addressed through roundtables and activities. Participants will meet twice a year in the course of this two-year project, which was made possible by a partnership with FBN International and Polaris. The next NewGen Council will take place in September 2016.
