Climate change is having a significant impact on our communities and many of the people that our social charities and funders work with and for. Its impacts, like more regular flooding and heatwaves, will affect some of the most vulnerable in society. And the policies that government pursues to cut our carbon emissions could benefit some in society, whilst leaving others behind.
With international climate negotiations taking place in the UK next year, and the government’s commitment to cut carbon emissions to net zero by 2050, charities and funders will need to understand what it means for them.
This online event will explore how the changing climate, and the policies that are needed to cut our emissions, could affect the people that social charities and funders work with and for. It will ask:
- Why is the climate crisis a social problem?
- What does net zero carbon mean for the social sector and its funders?
- What can we do to ensure climate change policies create positive outcomes for our beneficiaries
The event will be chaired by Peter Wheeler, Trustee of NPC and formerly of the Nature Conservancy. Speakers will include Karla Hill, former Global Programmes Counsel, ClientEarth and Dhara Vyas, Head of Future Energy Services, Citizens Advice.
