About this event
Join us as we share findings from the Everyone’s Environment programme’s engagement with people from ethnic minority communities to explore their priorities in tackling the climate and nature crises.
In collaboration with the Race Equality Foundation and the Ethnic Minority Environmental Network , we have spoken with those affected about how the environmental crises and related policy impact people from ethnic minority communities. In this webinar we will be sharing our findings, discussing what they mean for charities’ strategies, programmes, and advocacy.
This event will be relevant for social and environmental charities, particularly senior leaders, policy leads, those overseeing strategy and programme development. This is part of a series including parallel events relating to Older and Disabled people and Young People and there are further events coming up that consolidate findings for funders and for trustees.
We recognize that there are many pressures on charities currently, however the climate and nature crises matter to your mission and are an immediate challenge that needs the attention of senior leaders now. Your climate and nature informed action can reduce current and future harm for people from ethnic minority communities, addressing health inequalities, racism and ensuring positive life chances for all. The people you support are affected and their voices need to be heard, including by policy makers.
It can be hard for charities to explore what the environmental crises means for their strategy, programmes and advocacy – which is why the Everyone’s Environment programmes collective findings will help you. Over 50 partners strand together on this journey via the Everyone’s Environment programme. Now more than ever social and environmental charities must operate systemically and collaborate to achieve impact for people and planet – join us if you agree.
It’s #EveryonesEnvironment and the people you support are impacted by the climate and nature crises now.
