Island Innovation’s Island Finance Forum 2021 – Investment for Sustainable Development is being held from 13th to 16th April.
This free to attend event brings together senior financiers, development partners and regulators to share and exchange expertise on sustainable and inclusive financial structures in island communities. The Forum will highlight the unique financial challenges faced by global island communities and the solutions for sustainable economic recovery and inclusive growth in a post-pandemic world.
This virtual event will be accessible to attendees from across the globe in a variety of interactive sessions, including networking opportunities to meet and exchange ideas face to face or in small groups. Attendees can choose which of the topics and sessions they actively participate in and after the event many will also watch and comment on the session recordings.
The Island Finance Forum will:
- Bridge the gap between sustainable development practitioners and financial stakeholders.
- Help island stakeholders access expert knowledge and financial opportunities available to them.
- Showcase the economic opportunities available from investing in the sustainability sector on islands – particularly impact investing and ESG.
Jon Buckland, one of Guernsey’s Island Innovation Ambassadors, said: “Guernsey has been developing its reputation as a centre for green finance as part of its support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This event is going to a wonderful opportunity to help bridge the gap between sustainable development practitioners and financial stakeholders.
“During the Forum we hope to showcase the economic opportunities available from investing in the sustainability sector on islands, with a particular focus on impact investing and ESG.”
Spaces are free, but they are limited so early registration is recommended.
