Leadership for change

Together for a Fair Climate Future
Discussion 6: Leadership for change

Tuesday 29 June 2021

This event asked what it means to lead positive change for a fair climate future, exploring the different types of leadership and the areas in which leadership is urgently needed today. The event also shared people's experience of leading positive change, across youth movements, business, the creative arts, and community organising and discussed what strong leadership looks like.

A key message from the event was that we need to ensure leadership leads to action at the scale and pace needed to respond to the climate emergency.
