As humanity increasingly suffers the impacts of a warming planet, no issue can be more important than climate change and the protection of our environment.

Yet these topics cannot be viewed in isolation. The impacts of climate change and biodiversity loss—and our response to them—are intertwined with our politics, economy, society and culture. Marginalized people feel the harms of climate change more severely while being least responsible for causing them.  

To convene conversations and facilitate action with all this in mind is a challenge, but it is necessary. And it can only be done with everyone at the table.
