Some of the senior Finegreen team are down in London today, attending (and sponsoring) Fulcrum Partnership’s third colloquium.Held in association with the innovative thought leadership organisation Terrafiniti, the event is themed around “Towards 9 billion”, with a focus on the future and notably how do we create the conditions whereby we welcome, rather than fear, 9 billion humans and enable them to build stable and meaningful lives for themselves and their children?
Professor Mervyn E. King, Chair of the IIRC and Fulcrum Member, will be opening the evening, to acknowledge the opportunity this event creates to contribute to this important agenda.
If attending also, we look forward to seeing you there and if you'd like more information about Fulcrum's future networking events, please email Finegreen Chief Executive Neil Fineberg.“Optimism is a strategy for making a better future. Because unless you believe that the future can be better, you are unlikely to step up and take responsibility for making it so."
