Sustainable Cities Oration
Every year the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation holds a thought leadership event where we invite an expert speaker and a panel to talk over an issue that is a priority for us. We call this our Inspiring Philanthropy Oration. We not only want to inspire people to get involved in long term philanthropy but also to do inspiring philanthropy. Philanthropic foundations with endowments sits in a unique position, able to take a long term view and, as well as addressing current social problems, look at how we prevent them in the future.
