Do you consider the challenge of climate change when advising groups?
What information have you provided to groups on this topic?
How can we begin to embed better practice in relation to climate change?
Climate change can often seem like such a huge and inevitable problem that it’s hard to relate it to our own work and to the work of the organisations we support. There are however many actions that can help to combat global warming whilst also helping voluntary and community groups to save money, improve their efficiency, and to help to preserve the local and global environment for future generations.
In this half day session, Karen Mellanby and Eleanor Pryde from Bassac will look at climate change and the way that it links to issues around economic, social and environmental justice. They will highlight the small actions that individuals and organisations can take to combat climate change, and present case studies of organisations that have moved forward and tackled sustainability issues in more indepth way.
Karen and Eleanor will talk about the benefits of acting against climate change as well as looking at some of the barriers to action and highlighting ways to help groups get around them. This will be an informal event with lots of time for questions and discussion, so no matter what your level of knowledge and experience you are most welcome to attend.
