Join us! Green Investment Lecture w/ Toby Cooper & Georgette Wong on 4/11

April 11, Emmanuel Episcopal Parish, Orcas Island, 6:30-8 p.m.

Friends of the San Juans is excited to partner with Toby Cooper and Georgette Wong to bring information to the community about green investing – a movement that benefits humanity and the planet.

Toby, a sustainability advocate and career financial professional will trace rise of socially-responsible investing from an obscure religious practice to the influential $14 trillion entity it has become. He will show that “aligning your money with your values” can lead both to personal satisfaction and a demonstrable measure of social and environmental change, and will evaluate the potential impacts on investment returns

Georgette is a recognized trailblazer in impact investing. From 2007-2012 she curated the Take Action! Impact Investing Summit, which convened thought-leaders and pioneering asset owners representing over $4.5 trillion dollars. She has presented on impact investing before the US Senate, the US State Department, the UN-backed Principles for Responsible Investment, and others.

All are welcome for a stimulating dialogue on a topic fundamental to our times.

From the first time we visited the islands, we were awe-struck by the natural beauty of this majestic setting: towering conifers, green meadows, beautiful lakes, forested mountains, all surrounded by the sound! Like any beautiful location, this magical environment could be “loved to death”, which is why it is so important that Friends of the San Juans is there to help us protect what we all love.
