Climate change affects the whole world but is not felt equitably. People living in developing regions and in social and economic vulnerability are the most impacted by climate change. Is it possible to rethink finance in a way that supports climate justice rather than contributes to deepening social and economic inequalities? How can civic action support communities on the frontlines of the climate crisis to advocate for more climate finance, adapt to a changing climate, and support global carbon mitigation efforts?
Drawing from her experience in mobilizing the youth for sustainable development goals, the Obama Scholar Rosario Garavito lead a conversation about shifting paradigms on finance and civic action to support a systemic solution to the climate crisis.
