West Midlands Funders Network Conference: Sustainability, Funding & Climate Change

18 May 2022 - 19 May 2022

Join this two-day conference on 18th-19th May 2022, alongside a network funders & investors who support civil society in the West Midlands.

We are facing a climate emergency.

Funders in the West Midlands – whether environmental specialists or not – can take action now to help local communities ensure a sustainable future.

There are important links between sustainable development and social justice in our communities. Combining social and environmental concerns is critical to tackling the root causes of ill health, poverty and disadvantage. And when combined, this approach will support greater and more inclusive, economic and social change.

You don’t need to have an environmental funding programme to contribute to the sustainability and climate action agenda. If your funding addresses poverty, disadvantage or ill-health, then considering sustainability in your operations, funding policy and practice will support sustainable development and social change.

Whatever your organisations size, mission and priorities we can all play a part in addressing the causes and impact of climate change. Mitigating climate change, and the human suffering it will bring, is a major theme in philanthropy today.

Join this action-packed, two-day conference to explore sustainability, funding and climate change in more detail, and find out how funders in the West Midlands can respond now and in the future to support local communities.
