“Introduction to climate finance”

Do you know what “Climate finance”, “green washing” and “sustainability” mean?

Join us for this presentation and networking event

What you’ll take away from this event:

“Climate finance”, “green washing”, “sustainability” are recurring words nowadays but what do they entail exactly? What is the difference between green/climate/sustainable finance? Climate change itself is such a wide-encompassing subject that it has generated its own institutions, concepts and vocabulary. Obtaining a synthetic view can be a challenge.

Designed by practitioners, not scientists or activists, this session is aimed at those members of the public who want to orientate themselves in this complex and sometimes confusing landscape. The presentation will position the concepts and institutions shaping the climate finance sphere and decipher the specialist vocabulary and acronyms, which often make the topic of climate finance sound technical, obscure and intimidating.

At the time when we are going to hear more and more about climate change in the run up to the COP26 in November in Glasgow, this presentation is a must !
