Philanthro-activism and the climate crisis: building a just, vibrant future for all

You can watch this event on Climate Group's Facebook Watch page.

Hear from visionary philanthropists and frontline leaders working around the world as catalysts to solve the climate crisis through 3 pillars of action -- shifting to 100% renewable energy, protecting nature, and transitioning to re generative agricultural systems -- with the goal of staying below 1.5°C in global average temperature rise. While some have said this goal is unrealistic, the latest science shows that not only is it possible, but it is far cheaper than our current energy system, will avoid trillions in avoided damages, and can stimulate the recovery of our global economic system post-COVID.
