Climate Change is More than an Environmental Issue: How to Prepare for a Low Carbon Economy

CCVO, along with Alberta Ecotrust and The Pembina Institute invite you to join a conversation about the nonprofit sector’s role in climate change leadership. 

There is a growing awareness that the issue of climate change and the transition to a lower carbon economy has implications across the nonprofit sector. This raises several questions, including:

  • How does the nonprofit sector demonstrate leadership and effect meaningful change?
  • Why is it important to apply a climate change lens to your operational management and to the very issues you exist to address?
  • What does your organization need to know about the transition to a lower carbon future?

We’ve assembled a panel of experts to wrestle with these questions. In this session you’ll learn how the transition to a lower carbon economy represents a ‘third industrial revolution’, and why people are talking about the concept of a ‘just transition’.

You’ll hear from nonprofit leaders who are making the connection between climate change and issues such as gender and poverty. You will have the opportunity to apply a climate change lens to your work.

Finally, you’ll hear about the opportunities that will unfold as we move to a lower carbon economy.
