Making Climate Advocacy More Accessible
Climate change is a global challenge that requires collective action from diverse communities, technical teams, journalists, as well as environmental program, policy and design professionals. However, many global climate initiatives are not accessible to persons with disabilities, leading to exclusion and marginalization. The Victor Pineda Foundation / World Enabled and their partners are pleased to host a webinar on practical approaches to accessibility in climate community gatherings and programs. The purpose of this webinar is to provide environmental practitioners, journalists and the wider community of sustainability professionals with knowledge and resources to make their climate advocacy initiatives more inclusive and accessible to persons with disabilities.
The webinar will take place on the sidelines of the United Nations Conference of States Parties to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
