Engaging specific communities and people with the climate emergency and climate action - focus on disadvantaged communities

The VONNE Climate Action Alliance (VCAA) as part of our work with the North East England Climate Coalition hosted three roundtable events in to explore the challenges and opportunities for engaging particular groups (communities and people of colour, younger people and people from disadvantaged communities) in addressing the climate emergency and climate action activities.  Following useful discussions in the first meeting, we are continuing the conversation by working together to think about next steps to engage people from disadvantaged communities and people experiencing financial challenges to get involved in climate action.

This roundtable is an opportunity for organisations with experience of working with disadvantaged communities and with people experiencing financial challenges to share insights on their experiences, and highlight any challenges they would like help to overcome in relation to engagement with climate action. It would be useful for attendees to share examples of previous, current or planned projects and opportunities for others to get involved. 

We'd particularly welcome attendance from organisations that work directly with disadvantaged communities and with people experiencing financial challenges, even if they have no experience of engaging beneficiaries in climate action activities.

The session is open to organisations that weren't able to join us in April and you might like to view and add to the Jamboard from the April session: https://jamboard.google.com/d/1TQRJC7PZkTrqaAXfBlcdDC2AwpAOqro4ywL1_3ue6DI/viewer
