• Description

A report from the Bellagio Initiative: In 2011, over a period of six months, a number of leading figures came together in an ambitious exploration of the major challenges to and opportunities for protecting and promoting human wellbeing in the twenty-first century. A diverse group of policymakers, academics, opinion leaders, social entrepreneurs, activists, donors and practitioners from over 30 countries took part in a series of deliberations collectively called the 'Bellagio Initiative'. Its aim: to generate discussions and stimulate innovative thinking on how philanthropies and international development organisations might find ways to move forward together to better protect and promote human wellbeing in the twenty-first century.
