Bringing Climate into our Work
Thursday April 13, 2023
4:00pm – 5:00pm ET | 1:00pm – 2:00pm PT
New research suggests that at least 85 percent of the world’s population has already experienced extreme weather events made worse by climate change, and that more than 200 million people worldwide are bound to be displaced by the effects of the climate crisis by the year 2050. It is becoming increasingly clear that no matter who we are or where we live, we all have a role to play in the solution. Leaders are becoming aware of the intersectional nature of climate issues – all jobs are eco-jobs, and all organizations can incorporate climate into their work. Exciting cross-sector initiatives, such as The Partnership for the Civilian Climate Corps that will put people on pathways to good-paying jobs in the clean energy and resilience sectors, show us how leaders are entering the climate conversation and making a difference.
Join us for a leadership support session led by climate experts from across industries on what you can do to incorporate a climate focus into your organization’s work. We’ll tackle key questions around implementing those changes: how to engage the next generation of leaders in our programs; how we can structure new financial mechanisms that de-risks investment in climate tech solutions at the project development stage; and how we can best leverage the most effective cross-sector partnerships and storytelling to catalyze support for the implementation of new solutions.
Our goal is to carve out virtual space for connection, support, and shared learning for any leaders of nonprofits, businesses, social enterprises, and communities who are navigating ways to address intersectional issues in their work. All members of the NationSwell Council are welcome to attend.
