About this event

Why take this course?

Increasingly, climate change and our response to it is taking centre stage at all levels of society.

With only 2% of funding going to climate mitigation, the philanthropy sector needs to do more to respond proactively to climate change and champion positive societal change (ClimateWorks, 2021). By taking this Climate + Philanthropy online short course, you’ll gain the insights needed to drive the change for a more regenerative and prosperous future – from within your foundation and beyond. Guided by over 20 industry experts, you will explore how to align your grantmaking, operations and investing with climate action, and become a driver for change in your network.

The course comprises a multimedia composition of texts, videos, visuals and infographics, structured in modules with bite-sized lessons. Five interactive Zoom sessions accompany the self-paced learning.

Our upcoming start dates

The course is offered in repeating cycles with one cohort of maximum 30 participants always starting at the same time and staying together as a group along the course.

The next course starts on 16 October 2023. There will be five optional interactive sessions where you have the opportunity to meet other course participants. These sessions will take place from 4:30pm to 6:00pm CET on the following dates: 17 October 2023, 8 November 2023, 22 November 2023, 6 December 2023 and 13 December 2023.
