The cover theme of the January 2021 edition of G&L is charities and climate change.
With the clock running down on the time we have left to avert catastrophic global warming, movements such as Extinction Rebellion have been working to mobilise as many people as possible to take part in non-violent action to try to drive the issue up the political agenda. But charities have come in for criticism for not joining the rebellion and not doing enough to tackle the problem themselves. In our cover feature, editor Tania Mason examines the arguments and the background to them, and considers the sector’s role going forward.
In the second feature on this theme, charity lawyer Natalie Barbosa outlines the key considerations for trustee boards who want to join the climate change campaign, and in the third, RSPB’s people director Ann Kiceluk explains how the charity walks the talk on protection the environment through its operational ways of working.
The January issue also celebrates the fact that G&L has notched up 15 years in circulation, and asks some doyens of the sector – including former Governance editor Dorothy Dalton - how governance has changed in that time.
Turn2us chief executive Thomas Lawson relates how the charity engaged with people affected by poverty in the development of its new strategy, and Sustrans IT manager Lyndsey Melling expounds the benefits of adopting the Cyber Essentials accreditation – a prerequisite to bidding for certain government contracts.
