Blue Sky Funders Forum and Environmental Education Funders Collaborative Convening

    The Blue Sky Funders Forum and the Bay Area Environmental Education Funders Collaborative (EEFC) invite funders to uncover the power of networks to help increase equitable access to the outdoors and all of its benefits. Featuring local and national leaders, this convening will showcase examples of organizations, partnerships, and initiatives that are strengthening networks, expanding coalitions, and advancing the field. Together, funders will explore opportunities to support and galvanize networks to move toward individual and shared goals in conservation, education, health & wellness, social justice, and youth development. Leaders from philanthropy and the field will also highlight collaborative efforts to co-create a unifying narrative to grow support for connecting people with the outdoors.

    The Blue Sky and EEFC convening will begin at 11:30 am and will conclude with a networking reception from 4 - 5 pm.

    Blue Sky will host an invitation-only meeting focused on its shared narrative initiative from 8:30 - 11 am.
