About this event
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 at the end of this 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 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 means for the social sector and its funders?
- What can we do to ensure climate change policies create positive outcomes for our beneficiaries?
A new era of openness to drive a more impactful civil society: NPC’s manifesto for the new government
We must be open about how charities are performing, open about where funding goes, and open with the government-held data that charities could use to have more impact. Our manifesto for a more impactful charity sector sets out how the new government can make this a reality.
Are they in the right places and what can we do if they are not? In this provocation paper Dan Corry uses data to ask if the current distribution of charities around the country is what we would want in an ideal world and explores what government, funders and charities could do about it.
