“Local Sustainable Finance Action Plans”

How can cities and regions use current developments in sustainable finance to better finance their own sustainability goals? How can companies, municipalities, NGOs and citizens contribute to this, and what role do motivation, training and networking play in this?

These questions are being investigated by the organizers of the Future of Fair Finance as part of a current “turnaround money” pilot project. Together with committed stakeholders from the four participating model cities Mannheim, Munich, Ghent (Belgium) and Križevci (Croatia), action plans are being developed for each city. Key results of the project, which is funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, will be presented at the morning event (on site at Mafinex in Mannheim and online in parallel).

The subsequent workshop in the afternoon is primarily aimed at people from Mannheim and the region. Here, the ideas of the action plan for Mannheim will be discussed, deepened and, as far as possible, implementation steps will be initiated (only on site at Mafinex in Mannheim, not online).

The main target group are actors in municipalities who want to advance sustainability through improved financing and who want to start activities and build structures for this purpose.
