The Underpinning Stories: Climate & Geography [Webinar]

Host Organization: Climate Leaders in Movement Action (CLIMA) Fund, Ariadne Network, Center for Story-Based Strategy,Confluence Philanthropy Environmental Grantmakers Association, Human Rights Funders Network, Justice Funders ,The Whitman Institute


This webinar is a part of a five-part series, The Underpinning Stories: A Funder's Dialogue Series About Climate Solutions:

  • October 24 – The Underpinning Stories: Climate & Innovation
  • December 13 – The Underpinning Stories: Climate & Scale
  • February 11 – The Underpinning Stories: Climate & Metrics
  • February 28 – The Underpinning Stories: Climate & Capacity
  • April 24 – The Underpinning Stories: Climate & Geography

As is the case with many systemic, pressing challenges, no one has all the answers. The CLIMA Fund (formerly Grassroots Climate Solutions Fund) is creating a space for transparent, deeper discussion about the underlying narrative frames and assumptions around who climate protagonists are and what constitutes a ‘climate solution.’ Each session includes a dialogue between invited speakers, followed by smaller group conversations among participants.

Participants will walk away with new understanding of the hypotheses that fellow funders hold about addressing the climate crisis and new ideas about how we are supporting climate solution practitioners as a community. The CLIMA Fund is a collaboration between Thousand Currents, Urgent Action Fund for Women's Rights, Grassroots International, and Global Greengrants.


  • How to approach climate change with funding strategies that reflect the complexity and interdependence of the crisis itself
  • How to bridge domestic and international funding initiatives to support linkages within the global climate movement
  • How different funders make choices about geographic funding and what this means for advancing transformative climate action


  • Dana Bourland, Executive Director, JPB Foundation 
  • Solomé Lemma, Executive Director, Thousand Currents
  • Heather McGray, Director, Climate Justice Resilience Fund 

This webinar is from 12pm to 1:30pm EST.
