Green banking blends with money and emotions in this informative program. We offer conversation about the leading-edge advantages of a “green bank” and about the power of focusing on healthy personal attitudes about money matters. Embracing financial health and social awareness is dynamically explored with two well-known innovators. You’ll hear about:

  • what’s involved in creating a “green” bank
  • why money is a such a loaded subject within families and relationships
  • how culture and family attitudes affect children and their lifelong ideas about money
  • why investing “green” is profitable and a vote for the future
  • the surprising advantages of shifting financial attitudes with trained consultants
  • how green bankers can offer helpful guidelines for “going green”
