Code Red for Humanity: Leadership & Actions around Climate Change in Maryland
Two recently published reports have shed light on key actions around mitigating the impacts of climate change in Maryland.
According to an analysis by the Center for Climate Strategy for the Abell Foundation, Maryland is no longer a leader among states in implementing policies and programs to avoid the most serious environmental and public health consequences of a rapidly changing climate. Further, it explains how Massachusetts eclipsed Maryland and identifies key characteristics of successful leadership to accelerate state actions in Maryland.
The Maryland Commission on Climate Change’s 2021 Annual Report to Governor Hogan and the Maryland General Assembly details recommendations for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and preparing for and adapting to the impacts of climate change.
Join the Green Funders Affinity Group to learn more about the content of these two action-oriented reports. We’ll then take time for participants to discuss with grantmaking colleagues what are they are doing and can do in the climate mitigation and climate justice space. Through the conversation, we’ll lift up issues for further learning and potential collaboration in the environmental grantmaking space.
Our speakers will be:
- Thomas D. Peterson, President and CEO, Center for Climate Strategies and Adjunct Professor and Lecturer, Johns Hopkins University, Energy Policy and Climate and Global Securities Studies
- Mark Stewart, Climate Change Program Manager, Maryland Department of the Environment, Maryland Commission on Climate Change
