In this episode, Julia Langer, CEO of The Atmospheric Fund (TAF), shares how COVID-19 has impacted TAF and its grantees.  With TAF’s mandate to reduce greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the greater Toronto and Hamilton areas, Julia underscores that there is still a climate crisis, amidst the COVID crisis, needing urgent action.  We need programs and policies in place.  

Julia also talks about the opportunity COVID has highlighted, of “multi-solving” – addressing issues of health, the environment, the economy, equity and more as we look to create a Resilient Recovery.

She encourages organizations to start developing these solutions to be ready to act when the stimulus funding flows – not just with the typical shovel-ready projects, but shovel-worthy projects that meet multiple needs.
