In a world threatened by ecological disaster, global inequality and human tragedy - how can we make a difference? This presentation will show why and how our choices can make the changes that are needed when joined with the efforts of others, such as:
- the bank we select,
- the pension fund and insurance that we choose,
- the investments that we support, and
- the voice that we raise to shape Government investments and financial behaviour.
