The Lab community is growing – transforming finance for people and planet

The Lab community is a network of systems-changemakers - including activists, campaigners, innovators, intrapreneurs, practitioners and thought leaders - all working towards a financial system that serves people and planet. Together, we collaborate to change the story on finance, shift the power dynamics in the system, and build a financial system which is democratic, sustainable, just and resilient.

Community Events

Our community events convene changemakers from across and beyond the financial system to connect, share and explore new ways to make finance serve people and planet.

Join us at an upcoming event to gain the latest insights on purpose-driven finance, learn from others, and get to know the Lab community.


Our community is a space for collaboration and learning between practitioners and experts working to transform the financial system. Within the community, there are thematic communities of practice and groups for particular community members.

If you support the Lab’s vision of a financial system that serves people and planet and want to help us get there – the Lab community is for you!

Meet the Lab community
There is such a huge amount of trust between us, and we are continuing to support each other and to work together to share contacts and resources. The biggest resource is the collective. We need to grow the collaboration, and I want to give back to the Lab and to future Fellows.
