Understanding and alleviating environmental-related global issues
Not-for-profit associations can and should remain at the forefront of the fight against environmental-related global issues through their own organisations’ actions. From climate change to deforestation, such organizations have been instrumental in creating awareness, shaping policies, and mobilizing public action. But such associations must, importantly, encourage and support their individual members to take personal ownership and responsibility in order to achieve mass adoption. One of the ways in which they do this is by creating knowledge and educational materials that help people understand the issues and identify solutions. IAPCO CEO, Martin Boyle in his article for HQ magazine looks at the role of the not-for-profit vs. the role of the individual.
