We have been working diligently to build ClimatePlan’s Advisory Boards that will reflect diversity in issue area, perspective, background, and geography for the last several months. We believe, and have always believed, that no single organization can do this work alone. ClimatePlan has found strength in being a broad-based organization that convenes like-minded- and not-so- like minded groups together to drive transformative change.
There are still several spots to be filled on our boards. If you are interested in ClimatePlan’s Governance Advisory Board or ClimatePlan’s Policy Advisory Board, please contact Nailah, [email protected]
In the meantime, allow me to introduce ClimatePlan’s new Advisory Board...
