The setting and details of a Sunnylands retreat create an atmosphere for reflection and collaboration.

While enormous progress has been made in recent decades to overcome global poverty, poor governance, societal strife, and eroding political will are threatening those gains in some parts of the world.  Therefore, Sunnylands places a priority on supporting domestic and international efforts to advance global health and food security, particularly in fragile and conflict-affected states.

The emerging consensus is that collaboration among a range of actors – governments, the private sector, non-profits, philanthropies, and individual donors – will be essential to successfully addressing these challenges.  Sunnylands’ goal is to build pathways between these entities by fostering dialogues to find the strategies that will lead to lasting progress.
