Everyone’s Environment programme launch

The social impacts of the environmental crises

About this event

Join us for the launch of Everyone’s Environment, an ambitious new programme working with over 30 social and environmental charities to support and empower people from the UK’s diverse social groups to be part of decision on, and better respond to, the joint climate and nature crises.

The environmental crises will not affect all people in the same way, with some of the most disadvantaged and marginalised people in the UK likely to be worst affected. Those impacts are poorly understood and very few of the people affected have been included in decision-making on how society responds. Charities and funders have a critical role to play in supporting and empowering different social groups to be part of these decisions.

That is why NPC is working with charities in the social and environmental sectors, as part of Everyone’s Environment, to gather evidence of the impact the environmental crises will have on different social groups, hear directly from people in these groups, and work out how charities and policy makers can design programmes and policies to support and empower people to respond to the environmental crises. We’ll also be sharing how charities and funders can get involved.

At this event you’ll hear more about Everyone’s Environment, and from partner organisations, on how the environmental crises is affecting the people and communities they work with. Confirmed speakers include: Sarah McArther, UK Youth Climate Coalition; Jabeer Butt, CEO, Race Equality Foundation; Liz Gadd, NPC’s Principal of Strategy,  and Leah Davis, NPC’s Head of Policy and External Affairs. The event will be chaired by Richard Benwell, CEO of Wildlife and Countryside Link.

The event will be of interest to social and environmental charities, and funders of all shapes and sizes, including those working on issues relating to children and young people, health, disability, older people, people from ethnic minority communities, housing, poverty, cost of living, climate change, pollution, biodiversity and much, much more. Whatever your mission, the people you work with, and for, will be impacted by the environmental crises.

This programme is supported by The John Ellerman Foundation and the William Grant Foundation. There are opportunities for further funders and charities to join us, contact us to find out more.
