Together for Europe - Called to Unity: Towards an Ecology of Relationships

FaithInvest CEO Lorna Gold and Programme Manager Catherine Devitt will speak at this event, which was prepared by Together for Europe with representatives of various Churches, Movements and Communities.

During the morning, the speakers will take us through the Churches’ thinking on the subject of relationships that form the basis of our acting and interacting with creation; afterwards, we will dialogue with them to further explore the topic.

In the afternoon, ample space will be devoted to good practices in the efforts to safeguard creation which are already underway in various European countries.

FCI Interest Group Quarterly Forum

At our 7th March meeting, we'll go deeper into developing-market climate investing - and a potential path for more involvement from Faiths - with Green Climate Fund (GCF), the world's largest climate fund. 

 

Green Climate Fund was established by the United Nations, is funded by developed countries, supports developing countries and partners with commercial, non-governmental organizations, developmental, investment and many other institutions to invest in 'on-the-ground' climate mitigation and adaptation projects.

We will introduce GCF, cover their extensive investment project activities, and explore ways Faiths can engage. Join us!
