Climate change is a topic on everyone’s minds. But as a funder, how do you start to apply a climate lens to your philanthropy and investments?  

A changing climate affects everyone, but not equally. Low-income households struggling with rising electricity bills, people with chronic health conditions, bushfire- and flood-affected communities that lack adequate resources to begin with — these Australians and many more, are particularly vulnerable to the pervasive impacts of climate change.  

It’s why we’ve partnered together to develop and launch a Climate Lens tool for Australian funders seeking to better understand — and armed with this insight mitigate against — the cross-cutting impacts of climate change, all of which are working to undermine the people, places and causes you serve.  

We would love you to join us in Adelaide to share this new tool with the Australian philanthropy community. You’ll have the opportunity to connect with peers, hear first-hand from funders who are applying a climate lens to their giving and be inspired by the impact that can be achieved for a safe climate and stronger communities. 

We look forward to seeing you there!
