Aim and Topics

This workshop is co-funded by the Money Marco and Finance Society (MMF) and the Department of Management, Birkbeck College, University of London. This workshop will take place at Birkbeck College on March 31st and April 1st 2022, with simultaneous streaming as an online interactive event. 

 

This workshop aims to understand the investment implications of environmental and social factors across different economies to achieve greater common good. No country can afford to ignore the financial risks of climate change. The workshop will focus on various topics in environmental finance but aim to include studies from industrial countries and middle- and low-income countries. It provides a platform for all people working on environmental finance issues to discuss the latest insights and foster dialogue between academics and practitioners. The voice from “non-industrial countries” is often unheard. We hope to encourage diverse voices and promote positive change for all through this workshop.

 

 

EVENING PUBLIC EVENT

In addition to the workshop, an evening public event on the same theme of “Environmental Finance for the Common Good” will be scheduled on Thursday March 31st. The event will be open to the public and streamed to online participants. The public event will allow scholars, practitioners, and the public to engage, network, learn and discuss the latest insights on environmental finance. Registration for attendees (online and in-person) of the workshop and/or the evening public event is free but mandatory. It is open until March 29th 2022. No registration will be accepted after this date.
