How can money and banking be used as a force for good - not only lifting people out of poverty, but as a tool for improving the health and well-being of our most-vulnerable communities?

This is the vision of Professor Muhammad Yunus, 2006 Nobel Peace Laureate. At this event, you will hear about how research at the Yunus Centre for Social Business & Health, has been addressing the above questions.

During the World Economic Forum held in January 2019 in Davos, Sir David Attenborough warned that human activity has taken the world into a new era stating that if we damage nature, we damage ourselves as he urged political and business leaders from around the world to make a renewed push to tackle climate change before the damage is irreparable.

With this in mind, the Centre for Climate Justice’s Townhall will foster an exchange of ideas and to advance collaboration to combat the negative health impacts of climate change in the world’s cities.
