According to Giving What We Can, Cool Earth is the most effective charity when it comes to mitigating climate change – they estimate that Cool Earth can reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 1 tonne with each $1.34 donation.

The charity’s effectiveness is due to their unique approach: they work alongside indigenous people to halt rainforest destruction. Half of the world’s rainforest has been destroyed in the last 40 years and continues to be lost at a faster rate than ever.

Dr Hannah Peck, Head of Programme at Cool Earth, will be speaking about the charity and how they work with indigenous communities to prevent deforestation, as well as giving a personal account of what it’s like to work in the charity sector.

There will be (free) food and wine (+ soft drinks), so there’s no reason not to come to this event. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions and speak to Hannah after the talk.

The charity has recently been elected as the charity of both the Pembroke JP and Stokes Society. The event is hosted by Pembroke JPC , The Stokes Society, Giving What We Can: Cambridge, and 80,000 hours: Cambridge.

This talk is part of the Effective Altruism: Cambridge series.
