Event description

Description

The world is changing - and your investments should too. High-carbon investments will fall short in a low-carbon world. Yet, Canadian banks have doubled down in energy infrastructure intended to sustain fossil fuel production decades into the future. We all have a role in achieving the low-carbon transition - start by divesting your money from fossil fuels to remove our collective financial resources away from an extractive economy to a regenerative one.

Join us in this lively panel discussion event with experts who will teach us how to invest in companies dedicated to promoting sustainability!


Agenda

Panel Discussion: 1:30 p.m.

Q&A: 2:15 p.m.

Reep Open House: 2:30 – 3:30 p.m.
