Session resources from #2018FPN Driven, FPN's 10th Annual Statewide Summit on Philanthropy.
The existential threats to people and the environment from climate change are increasingly well understood. NOAA’s 27th annual State of the Climate report revealed record-setting climate change indicators in 2016, resulting in extreme global events including late-season Hurricane Matthew, which devastated parts of Northeast Florida. In addition to more active hurricane seasons, climate change indicators – such as extreme heat, severe drought and vector-born disease such as Zika – carry systemic implications for Florida’s marginalized communities. Experts shared why climate justice, community-based change initiatives and integrating climate resilience and equity into your grantmaking portfolio deserves philanthropic attention, as well as important ways philanthropy can support and amplify this work.
