Please join the Northern California Grantmakers for a discussion about the role the philanthropy community can play in strengthening the region’s resilience to the effects of climate change, while addressing urgent regional concerns related to displacement, income inequality and more.
At this event you will:
- Learn about innovative solutions to mitigate the impacts of climate change on vulnerable communities in the Bay Area
- Explore the intersections between protecting communities from flooding, fire risks, and other climate change-related risks, and promoting equitable community economic development, displacement prevention, affordable housing, and vibrant open spaces
- Explore opportunities for public-private partnerships in building a resilient Bay Area, and where philanthropy can have the greatest impact
- Discuss ways to promote equitable planning and design practices that empower and engage vulnerable or marginalized communities, within this new innovative model
