Tamarack Institute Webinar 

Advancing Climate Equity Through Place-Based Collaboration

August 7, 2024 | 1:00-2:00 PM ET 

 

Description

For more than three years, Tamarack’s Community Climate Transitions (CCT) network has been supporting community-led climate action that builds more just and equitable futures. Through our work with municipalities, community organizations, resident-led groups, and others forming cross-sector coalitions, we have learned a lot about what it takes to address the climate crisis in a collaborative way that ensures no one is left behind.

Advancing climate equity means recognizing that climate change does not impact all of us equally. Historic and current injustices have led to disproportionate impacts on Indigenous Peoples, Black and racialized people, women, people with disabilities, and more. These groups also have skills, knowledges, and ways of being that are essential to building a more sustainable future for all.

Place-based collaboration and partnerships means recognizing that given the complexity of the challenges we face, key local institutions and lived experience experts within communities need to co-create climate solutions and align resources around shared goals.

Join us for a conversation on how to bring these principles together through the launch of our latest 10 Guide: Advancing Climate Equity Through Place-Based Collaboration. This comprehensive resource captures our insights from our work with 70+ network members and case studies of communities across Turtle Island that are leading the way. The speakers – who will be announced soon – will share best practices, lessons learned, and more from their efforts to take collaborative climate action.
