About this event

2020 was to be a crucial year for progress on climate change with considerable focus on COP26 and (expected) new, ambitious government commitments to further reduce GHG emissions. The covid-19 pandemic has delayed the COP process and redirected our collective attention to limiting the depth and breadth of the pandemic’s far-reaching negative impacts. It has also, however, created an opening for introducing even deeper systemic change. It has brought into sharp relief the weaknesses of our current systems and created an appetite to move beyond incremental improvements — to rethink our priorities, reimagine the economic and social systems that support our goals, and determine how to re-set those systems to deliver better outcomes.  We believe that the philanthropic sector can play an important role in supporting these transformative processes and have crafted these conversations with that intention in mind.

In our third fireside chat, Emerging: Empowering and engaging the citizen sector through new climate narratives, experts focus on levers for change and ways to reach beyond those who are already actively involved in climate to bring many more people into the conversation and provide pathways for them to become engaged and involved. The third fireside chat features Anthony Leiserowitz in conversation with Lindsay LevinChris Lightfoot, and Gunhild A. Stordalen. Please be sure to join us!
