Speakers: Daniel R. Katz & Juliette Timsit
COP21, also known as the 2015 Paris Climate Conference, will, for the first time in over 20 years of UN negotiations, aim to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, with the aim of keeping global warming below 2°C. This conference, with more than 40,000 delegates from 195 countries all over the world, will be critical in framing the international response to man-made climate change. But what will be the effects of outcomes on climate change philanthropy?
Join us on November 20th for a complimentary webinar as we break down the context and stakes surrounding the COP21 and how NGOs, grassroots organizations and climate networks are organizing on the road to and beyond Paris as we bring broader notions of equality and justice into discussions around climate change and look beyond concerns for reducing emissions alone.
Moderated by Mark Randazzo, Director of EDGE Funders Alliance, our speakers will include: Juliette Timsit, Paris-based board member and director of the French-American Charitable Trust centered around strengthening the philanthropy sector in France and developing a collaborative network of family foundations and Daniel Katz, American environmentalist writer, speaker, activist and currently the Senior Program Director at the Overbrook Foundation.
