Symposium: Sympathetic Values

Innovative Funding Mechanisms for Social Change

On the occasion of its 10th anniversary, the Canopus Foundation organized a symposium with the title “Sympathetic Values – Innovative Funding Mechanisms for Social Change” at the Grand Hotel Römerbad in Badenweiler, Germany. This symposium served as a platform to more closely examine innovative financial products with regard to their relevance in the field of social investments. The participants discussed how new financial concepts could be adjusted to best benefit the social sector and how new financial products would need to be designed to meet the specific requirements and values of social investors. During the symposium the idea was born to launch the Solar for All initiative together with Ashoka International.
