The Underpinning Stories: Climate & Metrics [Webinar]

Host Organization: Philanthropy New York and CLIMA Fund


*This program is hosted by our partner, the CLIMA Fund, who has extended an invitation to PNY members. Space is limited and will be granted on a first come, first served basis.*

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 9 – 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 we communicate the impact of diverse climate solutions
  • How we can evolve evaluation practices to support rather than hinder climate solutionaries.

Solomé Lemma, Executive Director, Thousand Currents
