The Nature Conservancy is proud to be a non-partisan voice for all of nature, humanity included, and is constantly adapting to take on our planet’s most important challenges. Though we’ve begun a new year, we’re still facing one of the most important and defining challenges of our time: climate change.
Our climate is changing at an alarming rate, increasing the frequency and severity of natural disasters across the globe. Our wild places are disappearing, along with biodiversity critical to the health of our ecosystems that provide us with nutritious food to eat and clean water to drink. And, across the globe, disadvantaged communities are disproportionally affected by these harmful climate outcomes, though they are among their lowest contributors.
With the new year comes new opportunities. You’re invited to join us on Thursday, January 21 from 5:30-6:30pm ET for an interactive discussion with The Nature Conservancy in New York’s Executive Director, Bill Ulfelder; Policy and Strategy Director, Jessica Ottney Mahar; and Senior Policy Advisor, Greg Jacob on what the new administration means for conservation. Together, we can lead the way on climate policy and action by empowering local communities, creating sustainable economic opportunities and establishing a stronger, more resilient and more equitable future for generations to come.
