Bringing the voice of the Citizen into Finance
into the Design of a Sustainable Financial System has been initiated by the United Nations Environment Programme to advance design options that would deliver a step change in the financial system’s effectiveness in mobilizing capital towards a green and inclusive economy. A group of concerned citizens met at the international banking summer school in Lyon 2014 and founded a
working group with participants from 7 countries from social banking, civil society, business and academia. We are all practitioners who can see that a sustainable and responsible financial system is possible if certain core values of sustainability, transparency, diversity, fairness and inclusion are at its core. We have submitted a working paper to the Inquiry to stimulate discussion. It is time we stopped turning a blind eye to what is wrong with the financial system and in opening our eyes, turned our face towards a values based system. Here is our CALL TO ACTION.
