Vision and strategy
Our vision is a financial system that serves people and planet, one which is:
- Democratic. Transparent and accountable, where everyone can participate in the rule-making and institutions that shape it.
- Sustainable. A positive force that helps meet society’s long-term needs, and supports human flourishing on a thriving planet.
- Just. Promotes diversity and equality and protects human rights.
- Resilient. Provides security and stability for all, and for the real economy.
Our Strategic Model
The Lab works for transformative change across the financial system. Deep, lasting, positive change that reshapes and renews our:
- Mental models. The social and cultural mindsets, narratives, norms and values that make up and perpetuate what we believe is normal.
- Power dynamics. How the system operates, who gets most influence, and whose interests prevail.
How do we do this? By:
- Cultivating a powerful community of systems-changemakers, from inside and outside the financial system, including innovators and influencers from values-based finance, fintech, mainstream finance, civil society organisations, governmental organisations and academia.
- Working on high impact initiatives with clear leverage points, to achieve concrete changes that shift mental models and power dynamics to transform the financial system.
