The Nippon Foundation is announcing the Asia Philanthropy Conference 2023, where the philanthropy sector in Asia will gather together.

In 2023, DE&I will be the main theme, and multiple sessions will be held with themes such as art, sports, and conflict prevention.

Although it will be a hybrid event, there will be a social gathering after the lecture at the face-to-face venue (Hotel Gajoen Tokyo), so please come and join us.

Program Details

The Asia Philanthropy Conference was launched in 2022 to invite the heads of organizations in the field of philanthropy, including foundations that work to solve social issues in the Asian region, and to promote cooperation and collaboration to solve issues. I did. Support activities through philanthropy, which refers to charity activities and social contributions, can provide support with a sense of speed in areas where public support from government agencies, corporate activities, social investments, etc. cannot provide sufficient solutions. It has that advantage. This conference aims to bring together leaders from Asia's philanthropy sector, including foundations that lead such efforts, to jointly find solutions.

The theme of the second conference is DE&I (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion). DE&I is the basic idea in order to strengthen a society where no one is left behind and where the path to social participation is equally open to everyone. All sessions at this conference will have DE&I as the core theme, and discussions will be held from various angles.
