Climate change and gender
Tue 9 August 2016, 18:00 – 20:00 BST
Dear WISE London members,
We’re back, and we have a very interesting discussion topic for our next meeting: How does gender play into the climate change agenda?
The event will take place on Tuesday 9 August 6-8pm.
"In April Newton held a conference called “2 Degrees of Change”, in collaboration with Christiana Figueres (UNFCCC) to discuss the parallels between efforts on climate change and gender equality. It also sought to explore how to create a ‘compounding effect’ in reprioritising climate change-related issues on the corporate agenda.
The conference was very well attended, the speakers passionate and the wish for action palpable. But the figures for both issues were and still remain stark, and doing something tangible since the event has proven difficult. WISE and I would like to invite you to Newton for drinks and nibbles, to discuss these challenges and explore what the RI industry and wider finance can do to move the needle."
