Climate change and fairness - dos and don’ts for UK climate advocates

 Registration is closed for this event
With the cost of living soaring, questions about what is ‘fair’ in climate policy are more important than ever before. Climate action, and how it impacts people’s lives, must be seen to be fair, or it won’t stick.

This can be tricky terrain for campaigners to navigate: for example, what activist audiences think is fair isn’t necessarily shared by the public at large. As vocal opponents of climate action are trying to paint net zero as ‘unfair’, it’s more important than ever for advocates to be strategic and empathetic about different views on ‘fairness’, and understand what this means for campaigns.

  • What does ‘fairness’ mean for different people in the UK?
  • Where is there common ground, and where are there big differences? 
  • What can campaigners and advocates do differently?  
  • And what are the most important dos and don’ts? 

Speakers: 

  • Robin Webster, Senior Programme Lead, Advocacy Communications, Climate Outreach 
  • With an introduction to the UK political context by Chris Venables, Head of Politics, Green Alliance 

Climate Outreach experts will be online to discuss your questions following the main presentation.
