Upcoming Speakers!

Where and When: Our guest speaker forum meets from 2-3pm on Sundays before the regular Alternative Banking meeting whenever we can schedule good speakers. It meets in room 409 of the International Affairs Building of Columbia University on Amsterdam and 118th.

The schedule as of now is:

July 27th, 2014  – Excited to have Ken Marienau, CEO of Mission Markets speak to us. Mission Markets is an impact investment portal for individual and organizational investors who look for financial return while supporting social and environmental objectives like improvements in education, health, community development, or sustainability.

August 3rd, 2014. Via Skype we will have a conversation with Justin Richie - a co-host of a podcast, blog and video series called Extraenvironmentalist that explores the mindset of an outsider looking in on Earth. Such an outsider would be immediately struck by how unsustainable our social, environmental and economic systems are and would promote awareness of this problem while proposing alternatives.

Through The Extraenvironmentalist Justine and his co-host create a map for understanding and navigating the transition from the relatively stable world we thought we could expect into the unpredictable and tumultuous world of the early 21st century. With conversations that confront the magnitude of this challenge, our generation can band together and create a solidarity of understanding resulting in a meaningful path of action.
