THE CONCEPT

Philanthropy for Green Ideas is a project of the Balkan Green Foundation supported by Rockefeller Brothers Fund's Western Balkans Program. It aims to stimulate and encourage innovation for green business ideas at the local level and explores the role of philanthropy in engaging local communities to generate green business ideas that utilize local resources and revitalize disappearing traditional production chains and community-based markets. By supporting innovative, local sustainable economic development initiatives, Philanthropy for Green Ideas aims to substantively contribute to building a peaceful, competitive, and prosperous Western Balkans region.
