Can we diversify our way to carbon neutral? What do you get when you cross a hippie eco-philosopher with the International Trade and Forfaiting Association Annual Conference, and add a generous dose of psychedelic Buddhism? 100 bankers balancing Yoyo Fruit Rolls on their heads, of course! In this talk, Dr Burch-Brown takes us on a deep dive into the philosophy of green finance and a step closer to addressing climate change, by way of a lively tale of philosophy going banking. Sean Edwards, Chairman of the International Trade and Forfaiting Association, will be offering a short response before we open up to the audience Q&A. Expect to be surprised.
