As the retreat leader drafts this summary in mid-2021, weather events around the globe have come together to demonstrate that going green is an urgent imperative, no longer a muddied issue or a nice-to-have. Many people have long accepted that we all have a duty as custodians of our planet. But they did not know how they individually could use their money to help. Or feared, incorrectly, that investing for sustainability means monetary loss. This retreat is for all people of goodwill to gain a grounding in the world of investment generally, the information they need to design a particular investment strategy that suits them, and to discover the financial power available to them to use for good.
