Green Finance Green Futures, and the associated event, is a school outreach programme on the topic of Green Finance rather than based on a specific piece of research. So probably falls into the category of “Knowledge Exchange” rather than “Research Impact”. The programme contains a suite of resources, which will remain available for students/schools to access as a legacy resource. You did not mention how long the “piece” should be – so I’ve written just a short blurb (see below). Is this what you were looking for? Let me know if you need any more informationBest regards,Tanya
Green Finance Green Futures is a programme of resources, aimed at secondary school pupils (S4-S6), developed by the Adam Smith Business School in partnership with Skills Development Scotland. Through online substantive content, active learning activities and video resources, students are introduced to the role and value of Economics (and more broadly Business and Finance) in Society through the prism of tackling climate change, with the aim to inspire young people to ‘think differently’ about the financial sector more broadly. The Green Finance Green Futures programme also provides valuable insights into career and job opportunities within Green Finance.
The programme can be undertaken as part of self-directed learning, or as part of a class or group activity (guidance notes for educators are also available). The resources include 3 powerpoint lessons with information, activities to complete and videos from experts in green finance and climate change from the University of Glasgow, Scottish Government, United Nations, Green Finance Institute, and various private and public financial bodies. The final session is a panel discussion around aspects of Green Finance and Green Careers with representatives from the Bank of England, the Scottish Government and Lion Trust Asset Management.
The programme went live on 18th October 2021 to coincide with COP26, but will remain as a legacy resource, publicly avaiable to download by educators and students from the Green Finance Green Futures webpage (https://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/business/aboutus/responsible/greenfinance/)
