Building a powerful community
What we do
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 that is democratic, sustainable, just and resilient.
Our 2030 goal is that our community of committed and connected systems-changemakers have demonstrated their power to transform the financial sector and grow purpose-driven finance, shift mainstream finance, shrink unaccountable finance, and influence law, regulation and policy.
Who is the Lab community for?
Our community is a creative, supportive space of collaboration and learning for all those working to transform the financial system for people and planet. It includes alumni from our groundbreaking Fellowship programmes.
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.
