Course Description

Social Finance and Social Economy Organisations have been around for a long-time. Together they have been able to improve education, better healthcare, reduce inequality, alleviate poverty, and much more! However, similar to green finance, social finance has struggled with many challenges. All of which that has prevented it from becoming mainstream.  

Even with these challenges, social finance has managed to grow and remain relevant. Along with new emerging social financial tools, will we see social finance come to the forefront?
