About the Meeting

The purpose of this conference is to identify opportunities to make connections between scientists, governments, affected peoples, and funding agencies, and to propose concrete actions that will result in more effective cooperation to tackle these challenges.  This conference will bring together researchers, students, scientists and administrators from academia, non-profit and philanthropic organizations, government agencies, and for-profit corporations, many of whom have already participated in geo-philanthropic or global development projects.  The conference will be highly interactive and include breakout groups, panels and facilitated discussions, as well as scientific presentations on case studies of past efforts at all scales.
