Registration is now open for the fourth International 4th International Faith-Based Investment Conference in January next year, which has moved online due to ongoing Covid restrictions.
The conference, which is co-hosted by FaithInvest, the World Council of Churches, Geneva Agape Foundation and the World Evangelical Alliance’s Business Coalition, is entitled: Faith-Driven Investing: Walk the Talk, and will be held on Friday 15 January 2021, from 9am – 5pm Central European Time.
Covid-19 has created worldwide turbulences in health, the economy, politics, education, religious answers and much more. How we allocate our – capital, human and natural resources – to achieve the greatest impact on development has become even more important. Churches and church-related partners and investors have great potential to contribute to faith-driven and impactful investing.
After successful conferences over the last three years on faith-driven investing, this fourth conference will explore these issues and share experiences of successful and challenging investment projects, as well as strengthen impactful cooperation between faith partners and investors, and present tools to make projects investable.
See the draft programme (attached below) but please note that this is subject to change.
Please note that registration will close on 13 January 2021. The registration fee is 30 CHF. More information is available here.
Due to the problem of time zones in online conferences, this event has a focus on Africa and Europe. A similar conference is being planned with a focus on Asia for Friday 5th March 2021, and an America focused event later in 2021.
