Addressing the climate crisis requires aggressive and immediate action to both reduce emissions and remove existing carbon from the atmosphere. Arabella's next Future of the Social Sector event will look into how philanthropy can best help tackle this challenge going forward. 

  • What strategies can philanthropists support that will most rapidly and effectively move our society toward a stable climate future?
  • What are the opportunities to support movement organizations that are building public and political will for climate action and a just, equitable transition from a fossil fuel-based economy?
  • Should philanthropists make big bets on geoengineering, carbon capture or removal technologies, or nuclear energy?
  • What are the potential unintended social and ecological consequences of these new technologies, and how can philanthropists account for them? 

The conversation will feature Danielle Deane-Ryan, the director of equitable climate solutions at Bezos Earth Fund; Sarah Kearney, the executive director of Prime Coalition; and Michelle Martinez, the director of the Tishman Center for Social Justice and the Environment at the University of Michigan. Bruce Boyd, principal and senior managing director at Arabella Advisors, will moderate the conversation.
