"If your anxiety about global warming is dominated by fears of sea-level rise, you are barely scratching the surface of what terrors are possible, even within the life of a teenager today,” – David Wallace-Wells, author of The Uninhabitable Earth.
Our planet is rapidly changing. We’re experiencing more rainfall, changing seasons, shrinking sea ice and rising sea levels. And according to the UN, the world has just 12 years to do something about it.
But the general public is looking towards organisations, leaders and key decision makers to take the lead, and charities are far from exempt. The public rightly expects the best from charities, and so civil society leaders are left with two choices: create an impact, or risk being left behind.
In this hugely topical half-day conference, a selection of climate and investment experts will explore the huge challenges posed by global warming, and set out some of the simple steps charity investors can take to ensure they are creating an impact within a rapidly reducing time frame.
