The effects of climate change are widespread, leading to long-term social, economic, and environmental impacts. For mid-sized Canadian cities, some of the major environmental impacts include food insecurity, extreme weather, and environmental pollution.  

Understanding the intersectionality between social issues in the urban sector and climate change allows organizations to create targeted and effective climate action programs. 

In this event you will learn:

  • Some of the linkages between climate change and social issues such as poverty, racial inequalities, mental health, climate migration, and food access.

  • About five social purpose organizations that have implemented socio-environmental intersectional programming who were researched and interviewed for this report. 

  • A series of recommendations regarding how Canadian social purpose organizations can incorporate climate action into programming and mitigate the negative impacts climate change has on their operations. 

The full report, five case studies and an educational primer will be available as resources for social purpose organizations to be informed on the intersectionality between the urban social sector and climate change issues.
