Next week, the first “Change Finance Forum” is happening in Brussels, and you’re invited!
The forum will help us prepare for the launch of a global Change Finance campaign in 2018. It will bring together civil society organisations like Oxfam, Positive Money and Open Democracy – to name just a few! – along with academics, sustainable business leaders and economists.
It’s being organised by our friends at Finance Watch, the European civil society organisation that works to counterweight the powerful financial lobby.  Because as we already know, if we’re going to resolve the world’s huge economic, social and environmental imbalances, we need to build a common understanding of how finance needs to change.
The forum’s happening on 4 – 5th December in central Brussels. We know it’s short notice, but for the keenest amongst you who are free next week, we thought you might fancy booking a train or flight to join us in Brussels! (It’s only a couple of hours from London by Eurostar!)
So if you’re keen, please follow this link for more details and to register to come.http://mailchi.mp/finance-watch/members-update-2069597?e=58c477e5a1There’s an exciting array of workshops and panel events lined up, including speakers such as:
