The Climate Solutions Summit
With the White House and U.S. Department of Energy’s recent announcement of the Clean Energy Investment Initiative, and specifically the Clean Energy Impact Investment Center, Confluence is providing an afternoon convening dedicated to building climate solutions through public-private partnerships at our 6th Annual Practitioners Gathering in Cambridge, MA on Friday, March 11, 2016 at The Charles Hotel.
The Climate Summit will convene philanthropists, family offices, foundation grantmaking staff, impact investment professionals and public agencies in a series of discussions that will explore the landscape for investment in climate solutions post-COP 21 Paris. A keynote and plenary themed around The Role of Private Finance in Building Climate Solutions, will be followed by two small session tracks with multiple workshop choices. Track One will focus on catalyzing mission-oriented investment in collaboration with U.S. Department Of Energy’s Clean Energy Impact Investment Center and will engage invited participants in strategic discussion. Track Two is offered to the general assembly in workshops related to The Role of Subnational Governments in Climate Financing; Resilience; Energy Access; and the Role of Philanthropy in Financing Climate Solutions.
