We are at a critical moment. It is time to discuss how our investments reflect our Catholic values, especially in response to the urgency of our climate crisis and ahead of the United Nations COP 26 meeting in Glasgow.
The Canadian Catholic community is deciding on its methods of investment and how these will influence social policies, keeping in mind that "[t]he current economic system is unsustainable and demands that we consider many of its key aspects," as the Vatican has previously stated.
On May 5 at 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time, the Canadian Chapter of the Global Catholic Climate Movement will hold the third of four sessions of a virtual forum on the Catholic eco-investment accelerator. The theme will be "Indigenous and Impact Investment," with the participation of Mark Sevestre, NATOA and RRII; Stephen Whipp, Glasswaters; Leede Jones Gable Foundation Inc.; Stephen Nairne, RAVEN Indigenous; among other partners.
