Event Details

This workshop, organized by the Climate Justice Resilience Fund, Mary Robinson Foundation Climate Justice, and Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, will bring together foundation representatives, philanthropists, investors and partners interested in the intersection of climate change and social justice — also known as climate justice. Climate justice means making sure climate action respects human rights and empowers disadvantaged groups. After hearing from speakers including Mary Robinson, climate activist Constance Okollet from Uganda, and a representative of the Oak Foundation, we will explore opportunities to collaborate in support of rights-based, community-driven activities to address climate change. We will:

  • Identify how climate action intersects with poverty, indigenous peoples, water access, food security, women’s rights, youth engagement, migration, and other social justice priorities
  • Craft contributions to the Global Climate Action Summit discussions
  • Find concrete entry points for fostering funder learning and collaboration going forward

This event requires an invitation and registration due to limited space. For more information please contact Kelly Diggins, Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, at kdiggins@rockpa.org.
