Skill up day: Church divestment and investment for a zero-carbon economy
Sat, November 19, 2016, 10:30 AM – 4:00 PM GMT
Skill-up day for campaigners and church finance officers.
Does your church have investments in fossil fuel companies? Ever thought about moving your money somewhere that builds the world you want to live in?
Perhaps you've been campaigning for fossil fuel divestment by your church. Maybe your church has joined the Big Church Switch and you are wondering what to do next. Or you may be a church finance officer with an interest in how your money can be invested ethically while making financial returns.
This event is for you!
Join us for this skill-up day, where you’ll learn about the process of divestment and reinvestment options: from low-carbon investments, to supporting local projects trying to transform our economy.
Why: We often hear that a block to fossil fuel divestment is not knowing the good alternatives that exist. Yet, there are lots of exciting possibilities out there!
For whom: Open to all, but this event will be of particular interest to fossil free campaigners, local church treasurers and finance officers at diocesan/district/Synod level (or equivalent).
