Climate Change & Poverty in Maryland

Climate Change & Poverty in Maryland

Thursday, January 07, 2016, 12:00 - 1:30 PM

Who will benefit if Maryland adopts progressive climate change policies and programs in 2016? The Maryland Climate Change Commission has committed to addressing equity, public health, and economic development as part of its work. Thus low income communities and vulnerable populations stand to benefit significantly. 

Commissioners Stuart Clarke, Lynn Heller, and Delegate Dana Stein will offer a briefing on the Commission's work. We will explore how climate policy in Maryland intersects with workforce issues, helps to build resilience in vulnerable communities and populations, enhances equitable development, and promotes public health. This program will be relevant for funders supporting neighborhood and community development, workforce development, health, aging, and basic human needs.

This program is for Maryland Philanthropy Network members and invited guests only. Lunch will be served.
