The Continuity Forum, our signature annual event, is based on the premise that continuity, when applied to environmental initiatives and social impact, is exemplified through sustained efforts to improve the greater good. The event provides a stage for 40 of the regionâ€™s most determined and creative social entrepreneurs to showcase their innovative organizations. The audience, comprised of some of the hemisphereâ€™s most influential business and thought leaders, is presented with a pipeline of pre-screened projects to directly engage with. Renowned speakers focus on how to drive continuity so that the key issues in the Americas â€” climate change, poverty, education and sustainable development â€” remain the region's top priorities.
The abc* Foundation is a think-do tank that identifies and supports high-impact initiatives in the Americas. With the belief that empowerment and hands-on engagement, rather than distanced charity, is the key to successful philanthropy, we provide involved advisory, marketing and media support to our portfolio of funded projects which, among others, promote sustainable regulation for oceans, convert landfills into 100% organic fertilizer, tackle food inequality and redistribution and deactivate gang violence in marginal communities with unprecedented efficacy.
