Impact Investing in Action. Climate Change, Food and Energy
17:30 - 20:00
IMPACT INVESTING IN ACTION. CLIMATE CHANGE, FOOD & ENERGY
The Workshop will lead you into action, and help explore various investment and engagement opportunities of impact investing. You will learn about different investment themes such as education, healthcare, affordable housing, and other social and environmental issues. You will also learn what are the existing impact investment products and platforms available for different budgets to invest.
We will then dive deeper into 3 topics: climate change, food, and energy. Why these three? Every human is facing it day after day. Every day we eat, we consume energy, and create impact on the climate with our actions. How can you transform your actions to improve society and be rewarded for this?
We will show you on live examples how you can invest in a supportive way for your family and local communities; how to switch to solar energy and explore all the costs and benefits of this switch; how to invest in your food in a way that would be beneficial for you, farmers, and the planet.
After the workshop everyone is invited for networking Apéro and open discussion!
