Divestment Forum: How to Invest in a Better Future
The RE Royalties team will be attending the fossil fuel Divestment Forum and divestment campaign launch, organized by 350Vancouver on Thursday, May 2, 2019 from 6 - 8 p.m.
The event aims to facilitate conversation and provide concrete tools to assist non-profit, private and public-sector stakeholders in divesting from fossil fuels.
RE Royalties will be participating in an exhibition-style forum, following the panel presentation, in which attendees can connect with each other and learn about the process of making this transition from financial experts and groups with inspiring divestment stories to share.
The evening will include a panel discussion featuring:
Dr. Larry Barzelai, Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, speaking about the Canadian Medical Association's successful internal divestment campaign.
Emilia Belliveau, David Suzuki Foundation & 350Vancouver, divestment researcher and campaigner, speaking about divestment as a tool for climate action.
Kelly Hirsch, Vancity Investment Management, speaking about options and approaches to divestment and practical steps for organizations seeking to divest.
