Shaping our future
Shaping our future is the product of a joint government and third sector process to explore how to mainstream action on climate change across the diverse third sector. The task force that wrote the report brought together four government departments: Defra, DECC, the Office of the Third Sector in the Cabinet Office and Communities and Local Government, as well as an interesting mix of 16 third sector leaders.
There is an imperative for the third sector to act, as climate change will affect many causes that the sector holds dear, and threatens the progress made in reducing inequalities and poverty. But Shaping our future focuses on the opportunities that tackling climate change offers: the opportunity to show leadership, to build resilient communities, to develop and provide sustainable public services, to secure green jobs and to encourage and support individual and community level behaviour change.
