AWE Conversation November 2021 - Disasters and Climate Change – what does it mean for us?
Disasters and Climate Change – what does it mean for us?
This week the world meets in Glasgow at COP26 to discuss the Paris Agreement for global emissions reduction targets and commitments to net zero emissions by 2050, or sooner.
The AWE Network has always been a strong advocate for committed, meaningful action on climate change, particularly in light of the unequal impacts global warming has on women and girls, and vulnerable populations, and also given the evidence that climate change is causing more frequent, extreme and catastrophic disasters, right now. This is directly impacting all of us who work and volunteer in, and are impacted by emergencies and disasters. So, all of us!
Join AWE Vice President, Amanda Lamont in this online conversation about what next after Glasgow and the COP26 proceedings, and discuss ways in which the AWE Network might support action and add its members’ voices to the growing movement to reduce our individual, national and global contribution to climate change. Amanda has just completed Al Gore’s Climate Reality Leadership training and can share the latest material and information from Al Gore and the Climate Reality Project in relation to the climate crisis and solutions.
