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.
Tuesday, October 25
1 – 4 pm
Women’s Centre of Calgary (39, 4 St. NE)
$45 CCVO members | $65 non-members
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.
