High-level events, bespoke meetings for philanthropy and webinars exploring topics of Loss & Damage, Agroecology, Climate Finance, Indigenous People’s & Energy Access, Racial Justice and Youth Movement Building
Participants, including foundations and activists from around the globe
The Climate Justice – Just Transition Donor Collaborative theory of change is grounded in the view that participatory spaces for philanthropy to learn from and work with the field provides a powerful foundation for trust-building, strategy development, and ultimately, collaborative action. Since our inception in 2021, we have incubated a comprehensive field-led learning journey for philanthropy to influence both internal and sector-wide intersectional change in line with the urgency and priorities of those on the frontlines.
HIGH-LEVEL EVENTS AND WEBINARS
Our widely praised learning journey took the form of 21 high-level events, webinars and bespoke meetings for philanthropy that have been attended by over 2,200+ individuals, including foundations and activists around the globe. Our events were designed as a “syllabus” highlighting intersectional themes and groups of people which receive insufficient attention and funding.
Each webinar was held in collaboration with and co-led by the communities and groups of people who experience climate injustices. Topics include: Loss & Damage, Agroecology, Climate Finance, Indigenous People’s & Energy Access, Racial Justice and Youth Movement Building.
