How should funders respond to the social impacts of the environmental crises?

About this event

Join us as we share findings from the Everyone’s Environment programme’s engagement with young people, people from ethnic minority communities, Disabled people, and older people, to explore their priorities in tackling the climate and nature crises.

In collaboration with more than 50 partners, we have spoken with those worst affected by the climate and nature crises about how they want charities and policy makers to respond.

In this webinar with the Association of Charitable Foundations and the Environmental Funders Network, we will share what we heard, and consider how funders can empower charities to take action on the social impacts of the environmental crises, exploring both:

  • How social funders respond to environmental impacts affecting their communities within their grant making
  • How environmental funders can better acknowledge and respond to the social dimensions of climate change and nature decline

This event is for philanthropists and staff of grant-making foundations, making grants in any funding area. It will be of particular interest to those with a role to play in setting grant making strategy at their organisation. This session will also incorporate time for discussion and reflection on the barriers to taking action, working together to share learning and build understanding of what works. It can be hard for funders to move beyond tightly defined funding streams, but this is a critical area that needs funder investment now.

It’s #EveryonesEnvironment and the people you support are impacted by the climate and nature crises now.
