Sustainable Finance to "inspire and educate islanders of all ages"

Wednesday 21 September 2022

Sustainable Finance Week is underway with students being encouraged to consider their own views at the 'Great Climate Change Debate' today

Organised by Guernsey Finance, there are a number of events all week, aiming to "inspire and educate the community with dedicated arts and student events".

Today, the island’s students will share their views at the Great Climate Change Debate event, open to all secondary school students, which is taking place at The Ladies’ College this afternoon.

On Thursday, award-winning polar explorer and photographer Martin Hartley will present his work photographing the polar ice caps and the impacts he has experienced due to the changing climate.

Guernsey Finance’s Head of Strategy & Sustainable Finance Stephanie Glover said: “Martin has conducted over 20 polar expeditions and assignments in the Arctic and Antarctic, several of which have focused on collecting data to help scientists better understand our planet.

“His work is a stark reminder of why we need to mobilise global capital to reach net-zero targets; this exhibition will focus our minds on the enormous task we face.”

Other events this week have included a breakfast seminar, art and music exhibitions and a guided walk through Moulin Huet.
