The COVID-19 crisis has dramatically changed our world, in so many ways. Things will never be the same again. The first task is to save lives. The next challenge is, in the words of UN Secretary-General António Guterres, to ‘build back better’.
PEX Climate Coalition
Inspired by the Funder Commitment on Climate Change in the UK, participants of the PEXforum 2020 in Madrid initiated the launch the “PEX Climate Coalition” to bring together national, European and thematic philanthropy networks, who commit to explore how they may best encourage and help foundations to address the causes of climate change and support adaptation to its effects.
In order to accelerate learning and streamline the process of philanthropy networks working with their members when signing up and implementing the Funder Commitment on Climate Change, a set of activities are required that the PEX Climate Coalition will put in place, such as providing support for foundations signing the commitment, facilitating peer exchange for philanthropy networks around this project and helping with the set-up of an international climate commitment.
