10:30 am - 11:45 am

We are hosting a panel for Virtual Wales Climate Week along with our partners Co-Production Labs for Wales. Come and join us! 

Community Climate Action and Fairness: Hearing From The Voices of Communities Across Wales – (Development Trusts Association for Wales )

Time: 10:30 – 11:45

Egin works to help groups who have been historically excluded from conversations around climate change to take their first steps towards tackling climate change. In this conversation co-hosted with the Co-Production Lab for Wales, we will hear from a selection of groups that we have been working with. How does the idea of climate action resonate with disabled people, ethnically minoritised groups, or people living in economic deprivation? What do these groups want to share with policy makers and government?

Note: We would like to note that the availability, technical literacy and confidence to even appear on a panel is a privilege, and so this panel is unlikely to represent everybody in Wales. However, as our speakers work and interact with communities who do not have this access or ability, they aim to do their best to represent their concerns, thoughts and reactions to the idea of ‘climate change and fairness’.

Audience

The session is aimed at: anybody who wants to hear what communities on the ground in Wales really think. Of particular interest to policy-makers and anybody aiming to work with historically marginalised and underrepresented groups.
