Making a Positive Impact

The Club hosts a variety of annual events with opportunities for networking, dialogue, and knowledge sharing among the scientific committee, members, friends, honorary members, and the board.

Annual Gala Dinner and Reception

Our Annual Gala Dinner and Reception isn’t just a gathering – it’s a celebration of ‘Renewed Humanism’, held in the heart of Firenze. This exclusive experience provides a sneak peek into the Club’s forthcoming initiatives and offers an interactive platform for discussions, exploration of opportunities in sustainability, and expanding professional networks.

It’s a chance to relive the Club’s remarkable journey and build lasting bonds within our community of members and our respected Board.

Our Annual TEDxOltrarno, hosted in collaboration with Fondazione CR Firenze and set against the stunning backdrop of Villa Bardini, brings influential voices under one roof. 

Attendees can dive into captivating talks, engage in thought-provoking discussions, and meet like-minded individuals. What sets this event apart is the opportunity for attendees to apply as speakers and share their trailblazing ideas.

The Florence Award for Renewed Humanism and conference

March 20, 2024 - Firenze, Palazzo Vecchio, Salone dei 500

Each year, the Club of Florence presents a prestigious award to individuals who have demonstrated exceptional achievements in climate action. This esteemed distinction is the focal point of a captivating series of side events, some open to the public and others held confidential. The Award Ceremony serves as a high-profile summit, bringing together leaders from national and international institutions alongside local influencers such as European Mayors leading the way in achieving net-zero cities. The event encourages active participation, engaging local representatives from youth groups, academia, civil society, and micro and small businesses. 

This extraordinary event acts as a magnetic force, drawing world leaders and influential figures in the climate debate to Florence. The Award recognizes outstanding individuals who have initiated significant paradigm shifts in economic and social spheres, particularly in climate action.

Honoring Our First Recipient
