Today: A Giving Tuesday Chat With Cool Effect at #CarbonCantHide!
By Marissa Rosen
In the last decade, the markets for carbon offsets have grown tremendously in scope, breadth, and rigor. Meanwhile, impacts of global warming become ever more present in everyone’s day-to-day lives. This is a call to action.
After the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend, tune in on Giving Tuesday to explore the voluntary carbon market, how to participate, and why now is the time for action!
During #CarbonCantHide, we’ll discuss the following topics and much more:
- What common misconceptions surround carbon credits and what makes a “good” credit
- What actions individuals can take to inspire their places of work to take action, and how companies can internally raise awareness of climate change
- How people benefit by being involved in discussing serious issues and tangible solutions through art and film
- How participating in #GivingTuesday can be used to have a positive impact on climate change
- How partnering with Cool Effect can allow individuals and businesses to take verifiable, measurable action to fight climate change
Bring your questions, and our panelists will answer as many as possible.
