At the 2022 Better Cotton Conference, we focused our attention on climate action and all the ways in which Better Cotton Farmers, Members, Partners and our wider network are all working to address climate change and focus their efforts on mitigation and adaptation.
During the conference, we took the opportunity to ask attendees what climate action means to them, both personally and in their professional roles within organisations spanning the cotton sector and beyond.
We heard a range of responses – from becoming carbon literate to tackling poverty to address unsustainable practices – illustrating not only how nuanced the challenges are, but also how we have many opportunities to take climate action, whether that be the small actions we take on an individual level or the systems changes we are driving as a sector.
Amongst the responses, there was one common theme that came up — collaboration — and how being part of a community taking collective climate action is essential to driving change.
