London, The Sustainable Finance Factory 28-30 Hoxton Square London N1 6NN

About the event

The session will bring us back to the heart of why we need to act and help you craft a powerful new message to advocate for change. What needs to be heard at this time?

The finance sector plays a critical role in the global transition to mitigate and adapt to climate change, restore ecosystems, and correct capital markets so that they can amplify rather than undermine the ambition of the Paris Agreement.

With the war in Ukraine and ‘cost-of-living crises’ threatening to tip nations back towards fossil-fuelled solutions, this is a make-or-break moment.

In these times of emergency, writing a Letter to the Earth is an opportunity to press pause and lead a different kind of conversation — to connect with others, build resilience and galvanise new possibilities.

In taking part in the Letters to the Earth campaign you will be joining thousands worldwide from all walks of life, including CEOs and business leaders, who are making their voices heard.

Wednesday 29th June, 4.30-6pm

Aviva Hoxton branch, London, as part of London Climate Action Week.

Places are limited: open to members of the IPCF coalition and those working in climate finance. 

Doors open from 4pm.

The workshop will be followed by a reception.

From Bevis Watts, CEO of Triodos Bank UK:

“The Letters to the Earth project allows anyone to get involved in sharing their ideas and feelings through an inspiring and creative format. For business leaders, in particular, not only does this project allow them to show the importance of compassionate and thoughtful leadership, but it also highlights the key role that businesses can play in taking urgent action around the climate emergency.”

Excerpt from a ‘Letter to the Earth’ from Steve Waygood, Aviva Investors:

“We now know that the free markets are harming all our futures. We are the first generation to know about climate change and the last generation to be able to stop it. There is enough money to stop climate change. There is enough scientific evidence that we have to. There is even enough political will. Morally, societally, economically, and financially, everyone now needs to do everything we possibly can. How else will we be able to look our children in the eye?”

Watch Steve read his Letter to the Earth at Shakespeare’s Globe here.
