Community Development Finance Conference (CDFC 2010)
|Event Date/Time: Feb 25, 2010||End Date/Time: Feb 27, 2010|
|Registration Date: Jan 28, 2010|
We are all aware of the links between the global economic system and growing inequalities between rich and poor, climate change and environmental degradation. The question is, what do we - in the community, government and corporate sectors - do about this situation? Answering this question lies at the heart of this conference.
Global changes to address these issues are certainly important, but at the same time inspiring, thought-provoking and practical answers are also being developed in local communities around the world and are supported by people of good will across all sectors.
Community and social enterprises, social investment, strong and ethical local businesses, local energy production, fair trade opportunities, community gardens, corporate-community engagements, micro-finance institutions, local currencies and exchange systems, community banks and local credit unions, federations and consortia of non-profit organisations to leverage common good â€¦ these are just a few examples.
