Weekly Web Chats: Climate Justice and the Global Pandemic
Time & Location
About The Event
This is event is part of our new 'Weekly Web Chats' virtual video series.
Presenter: Sandy McClure, Community Champion and Director of Philanthropic Partnerships at Global Greengrants Fund UK
What's it about? Join us on Wednesday 22nd April, the 50th Anniversary of World Earth Day, to reflect on the environmental crisis during this global pandemic. As planet earth gets hotter, and the impacts of climate change and environmental degradation intensify, we reflect on who is impacted most by the climate crisis- those who have contributed least to its cause- exposing the inequalities that exist around the globe within our current economic system, which are also apparent through this pandemic. Sandy will share stories to inspire hope from Global Greengrants Fund work with communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America, and the amazing and innovative solutions that communities are taking forward to tackle this. This resonates closely with the fantastic work of Sustainable Merton’s Champions on Energy, Food and Air Quality.
Join us to discuss how we can re-dress the multiple overlapping crises we are facing globally.
More about our 'Weekly Web Chats'
Whilst we are physically distanced, we want to stay socially connected with the Merton community and keep the important conversations around sustainability and the Climate Emergency going.
Through weekly online Zoom web chats, we aim to create a space for all of us to connect, talk, share positive stories, and learn about a variety of topics, with local people sharing their knowledge and practical sustainable actions.
More events coming soon!
