SPF blog on Le Temps platform | “Philanthropy for a V.I.C.A. world”, by Simon Mériaux

In a new article on our blog hosted by Le Temps, Simon Mériaux shares ideas drawn from his experience at the MAVA Foundation in order to demonstrate a virtuous philanthropy that effectively responds to the concomitant crises that the planet is undergoing, a world that can be described as V.I.C.A.: Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous. He proposes four main reflections, which we invite you to discover on our blog “He gives, you give, I give…” on the website of the newspaper Le Temps (in French only).

Economic and social problems are flourishing everywhere. Humanity’s appetite is growing and the pressures on natural systems are increasing. Global warming poses an unprecedented challenge. The recent global pandemic has revealed the fragility of our societies and the complexity of the world. In this context of profound and rapid changes in the issues, philanthropy must necessarily evolve.
