Can ethical investments make a difference?  What’s possible in Canada and what’s happening in other countries? This forum is the first of a three part series on this topic which  will explore investment in the new economy and divestment from fossil fuels.

On October 8th at 7pm in Mary Hall, Selkirk College’s Tenth Street campus, Nelson, BC, the forum will feature three speakers: best-selling author and clean tech expert, Tom Rand; financial expert, Ken Locklin; and United Church minister, Greg Powell. They will explore the practical, financial, and moral considerations of divesting from fossil fuels and investing in the clean energy economy. Admission is by donation.

The event is part of the Peace Café series hosted by Selkirk College’s Mir Centre for Peace, and is co-sponsored by the West Kootenay Ecosociety, the local chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby, and the Nelson United Church. Admission is by donation.
