PEXcommunity has voted on the new PEX Co-creation Council, electing 12 PEX Co-creation Council members who will co-shape the future of the PEXcommunity for the season of 2021-2022.
The elections for the next PEX Co-creation Council took place in early June. With a high turnout rate, the PEXcommunity voted for 12 PEX Co-creation Council members, – 10 representatives of Philanthropy Support Organisations and 2 representatives of PEX partners. The new Council will continue collectively shaping the future of PEX, with the PEXcommunity. The newly elected PEX Co-creation Council for the season of 2021-2022 is as follows:
- Alina Shenfeldt, Russian Donors Forum
- Annie Hillar, PAWHR
- Debora Guidetti, Ariadne
- Florence Miller, Environmental Funders Network

- Mihaela Giurgiu, ECFI
- Rosa Gallego, Spanish Associations of Foundations
The first PEX Co-creation Council was set up in October 2020 to design the PEXforum 2021 (27 & 28 January). Later, as a result of the participatory process, which is in the very existence of the PEXcommunity, the Council agreed in February 2021 to establish a more permanent Co-creation Council for the PEX to represent the diversity and expertise of the PEXcommunity to jointly develop PEX in the future. The purpose of the newly established Council is to facilitate collective vision and action, challenge, support and enable PEX. The members of the Council will commit their time, knowledge, experience, and networks to continue building PEX as a space for collective learning, imagination and acting for Europe’s philanthropy infrastructure. To achieve this purpose, Council will have general quarterly meetings throughout the year, and preparation meetings for the annual PEXforum.
The new PEX Co-creation Council will have its kick-off meeting jointly with the former PEX Co-creation Council in a handover meeting in early September. The Council will start preparations for the next PEXforum 2022 which is planned to take place in Istanbul, Turkey.
