On Monday, May 5, the Environmental Finance Center at UNC hosted an event on The Future of Environmental Finance. Through this public forum, our goal was to share promising strategies for financing current and future environmental challenges. Speakers from all levels of government, non-profits, foundations and businesses joined us to share their unique perspective on environmental finance. In all, 130 participants joined us in person at our institutional home, the UNC School of Government, while 250 participants watched the session live via an online stream.
In this post, our Senior Project Director Glenn Barnes shares his thoughts on one of the themes that emerged from the public forum. The post also includes a link to a video recording of the event.
