Financing and Measuring the Circular Economy - Capturing the Opportunity
Static Preview

In this session you will hear about financing and measuring the circular economy: how it helps deliver on climate and other ESG goals, while being a source of better and new growth; how the circular economy financing market has grown steeply across asset classes over the last two years; and how circularity performance can be measured to inform decision making by both business leaders and financiers.

Onjisay Aki Climate Summit

In June 2017, Knowledge Keepers and environmental leaders from around the world gathered at the Turtle Lodge Central House of Knowledge - in the heart of Turtle Island (North America) - to discuss Indigenous leadership on climate change. Knowledge Keepers shared the changes their communities are experiencing, and discussed the value of their Indigenous Knowledges in providing guidance for humanity in times of climate change. As young Dene leader Lawrence Nayally described, “there is still so much incredible knowledge that our people have that the world has never heard.”

COVID-19 and Climate: Implications for our Food System
Static Preview

August 2020

Will COVID-19 change our food system for good? Increased coronavirus outbreaks in food markets, food plants, and farmworker communities have impacted food access and put a spotlight on food insecurity. Farmers are hurting as supply chains for fresh, perishable foods shrivel. Meanwhile, food banks have seen a surge in demand that has required distribution support from the National Guard.

What does COVID-19 mean for agriculture, our food supply systems — and our diets? Join us for a conversation with Lisa Held, senior reporter at Civil Eats and Karen Ross, secretary of the California Department of Food and Agriculture, on feeding a nation under quarantine.

To stop plastic pollution we need a circular economy for plastic
Static Preview

In July 2020, The Pew Charitable Trusts and SYSTEMIQ released Breaking the Plastic Wave: A Comprehensive Assessment of Pathways Towards Stopping Ocean Plastic Pollution, one of the most analytically robust studies ever produced on ocean plastics. Thought partners were the University of Oxford, University of Leeds, Common Seas, and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.

Breaking the Plastic Wave shows that by 2040, if we fail to act, the volume of plastic on the market will double, the annual volume of plastic entering the ocean will almost triple, and ocean plastic stocks will quadruple. This is in line with The Ellen MacArthur Foundation's 2016 analysis, which revealed that in 2050 there could be more plastic than fish in the ocean.


The study also confirms that a circular economy for plastic is the only way to address plastic waste and pollution at the source. This is a vision that already unites 850+ organisations through the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment and the Plastics Pact network.

Catastrophe: Dialogues On Storytelling And The Present Moment?Part 2, Climate Change & Sacred Grov
Static Preview

Please join The Commonwealth Club of California and UC Berkeley’s Townsend Center for the Humanities for the second in a series of dialogues on catastrophe, storytelling and the present moment. In “Climate Change and Sacred Groves,” Townsend Center scholar Sugata Ray will meet with visual artist Ranu Mukherjee to investigate the relationship between the natural world and the sacred realm, especially as it has developed in India over the last several centuries of civilization and the rise of the Anthropocene era.

In his most recent book, Climate Change and the Art of Devotion, Sugata shows how a site-specific and ecologically grounded theology emerged in northern India in the wake of the Little Ice Age (ca. 1550–1850), an epoch marked by climatic catastrophes across the globe. His interests dovetail in unexpected and compelling ways with Ranu’s visionary and captivating recent work, which positions the banyan tree as a meeting point between ecology and culture. Their conversation will be an opportunity for viewers to contemplate and rethink the role of art as it relates to contemporary concerns around climate, disease, human flourishing and the sacred.

Sugata Ray is associate professor of South and Southeast Asian art in the History of Art Department at the University of California, Berkeley. His research and writing focus on climate change and the visual arts from the 1500s onward. Ray is the author of Climate Change and the Art of Devotion: Geoaesthetics in the Land of Krishna, 1550–1850 (2019); Water Histories of South Asia: The Materiality of Liquescence (2019; coedited); and Ecologies, Aesthetics, and Histories of Art (forthcoming; coedited).

Ranu Mukherjee is a visual artist who makes paintings, animations and large-scale installations. Her current work focuses on shifting senses of ecology, non-human agency, diaspora, migration and transnational feminist experience. Her most recent installation was presented at the ecologically focused 2019 Karachi Biennale; she has exhibited solo at the San Jose Museum of Art, the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, the Asian Art Museum, and the de Young Museum. She is an associate professor in graduate fine art at the California College of the Arts. Mukherjee is represented by Gallery Wendi Norris.

Climate Resilience and Response: Learning from this Great Pause" with Jessica Morey
Static Preview

The Garrison Institute presents a live webinar with Jessica Morey.

During this interactive webinar, Jessica guided us through earth-based contemplative practices to connect us with our belonging to and love and grief for our world and all the beings with whom we share it. She invited us to reflect on what we might learn from this time of pandemic about how to respond to the even more devastating global climate crisis. We practiced together to build the inner resiliency, compassion, and embodied interconnection to thrive in the crucial work of advocating for a livable planet for all.

Jessica Morey is a lead teacher and co-founder of Inward Bound Mindfulness Education (www.iBme.com). She began practicing meditation at age 14 on teen retreats offered by the Insight Meditation Society. Before joining iBme, Jessica worked in clean energy and climate policy and finance at the World Bank, the Pew Center on Climate Change, and the Clean Energy States Alliance. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Engineering from Dartmouth and a master's degree in Sustainable Development and International Affairs. Her published works range from the chapter “Ordinary Awakening” in Blue Jean Buddha to Conflict Resolution of the Boruca Hydro-Energy Project: Renewable Energy Production in Costa Rica. In 2014, Jessica brought her two life passions together to write about the potential of contemplative practice to heal our relationship with the natural world in a Shambhala Sun article.

Your support matters. Our vision for a more just, compassionate world has never felt more urgent.  If you have any questions about this event, please contact us here. .

Prospects for Global Coordination in an Age of Pandemics and Emerging Climate Technologies
Static Preview

Much like efforts to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, combatting climate change requires cooperation on a global scale. And yet the history of international climate negotiations shows just how difficult that cooperation can be.

At the same time, new technologies to alter the climate are emerging, posing their own challenges to multilateralism. What, if anything, can we learn from the global response to the pandemic that might aid us in governing new, climate-altering technologies? What functions and mechanisms are needed? How important is leadership in not only responding to, but anticipating and preparing for these global challenges? What role do ethics play in governance decisions?

These are challenges the Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative (C2G) knows well. Their work is focused on catalyzing the creation of effective and inclusive governance for emerging technologies that would seek to deliberately alter the one atmosphere we all share. For the past three years, they've met with senior decision-makers around the world in national governments, the UN system and civil society, urging them to explore questions such as risk management and transparent global monitoring and reporting before events overtake.

C2G seeks to catalyse the creation of effective governance for climate-altering technologies, in particular for Solar Radiation Modification and large-scale Carbon Dioxide Removal. C2G is impartial regarding the potential use of any proposed climate-altering technologies or interventions. These are choices for society to make.
