Charity giving: what we think, what we do, and what data say.

Matilde Lucheschi (Ph.D. Candidate in Marketing at Cass Business School )
-Is donating to a charity and bragging about it on social network correct?
-Is donating £10 to save one baby more moral than donating £10 to save 10 babies?
-Is raising money for charities and making profits out of it moral?
Book a ticket if you have answered 'no' to any of the above questions. Over a beer, we will answer these questions, discussing the paradoxes of charity giving: what we think, what we do and what data say. Be ready to get engaged.

Conscious capital

Mikael Homanen (PhD Candidate in Finance at Cass Business School)
How can the average person tackle global challenges including climate change, tax evasion, inequality and deforestation? I begin by discussing the immense transformation of modern financial capital and how investors are continuously re-evaluating their objectives. Ethical banks are growing in numbers, green bonds are skyrocketing and asset managers are increasingly competing with green investment strategies. What can the average person do? Quite a lot! This presentation discusses the success stories of the Average Joe and how they can continue tackling immense societal challenges.
