The Role of Finance in the Climate Crisis

Will Van de Pol
Market Forces

Bachelor of Environments degree from Melbourne Uni
and currently completing a law degree at RMIT

 

Will explains what Market Forces is all about and how they work. He will then explain their four major campaigns – banks, superannuation, insurance, and shareholder activism – before going into a bit more detail about each of them. Finally, and most importantly, he will let us know what we can do to help cut off funding for climate-wrecking fossil fuels, and ensure their money is used as a force for good.
