Synopsis

Faith groups aren’t just moral voices: the world’s faiths run 50% of all schools; a third of all universities; more than a third of all medical facilities; own about 8% of the habitable surface of the planet; and are probably the 5th largest investing group in the world...... as such important stakeholders in our global community, how should they invest their resources for the environment? Let’s find out more in the talk!
