How your wallet could save the world

Your money is so powerful. It could help tackle the climate crisis or fan the flames. It’s one of our biggest weapons in the fight against the climate crisis, and it’s time people unlocked that hidden superpower to build a better world.

Take pensions. Make My Money Matter’s research shows that having a green pension is 21x more effective at cutting your carbon than stopping flying, going vegetarian and switching energy provider COMBINED. Imagine if the $50 trillion in our pensions was helping tackle the crises our world is facing, rather than supporting business as usual?

So join Make My Money Matter, Count Us In and WWF-UK to hear from a range of exciting speakers who will give you real examples on how your savings, your bank and your pensions are impacting the world. And most importantly what you can do to ensure it’s having a positive impact.

Introduced by Richard Curtis, there will be a series of rapid-fire speeches followed by exciting short films to help you understand the power of your wallet. There will be a chance to quiz our speakers on everything you ever wanted to know about money but were too scared to asked. Then we’ll close with a screening of Our Planet: Too Big To Fail – a cinematic masterpiece inspired by the Netflix Our Planet series and created by WWF and Silverback Films – featuring the one and only Sir David Attenborough.

Many other events during COP26 will focus on the problems. Join us and learn how you can be part of the solution.
