A climate science workshop series by Active Philanthropy: Episode 1
Navigating the complexities of the climate crisis is tough. Yet in order to take targeted action on climate, a basic understanding of the science behind it is key. At Active Philanthropy, our mission is to equip philanthropists and foundations with the right knowledge and tools to turn aspiration into action. And with COP28 just 6 weeks away, we believe this is the perfect time to start building a solid understanding of climate science or to brush up on what you already know.
Our virtual climate science workshop series, led by globally renowned climate scientist and science communicator Dr. Twila Moon, will take you through everything you need to know about climate. Each of the 8 episodes is just about 5 minutes long and packed with the most important facts and figures.
