Event Details

Do you know where your money is? More importantly, do you know what your money is doing?

Most of us feel as though the world of money and finance is something that happens to us, and few of us feel confident in taking responsibility for what our money does. We hand over the power of money to banks and mainstream finance with real, often damaging, consequences for people and planet.

Bruce Davis offers a new way to make your money matter with Local Climate Bonds – now part of a national campaign to fund net zero projects in communities across the UK. Only by democratizing finance, by reconnecting money with a sense of social and environmental purpose, can we begin to change the world one £5 note at a time.
