Alison Trott Bryd  has traveled from geneticist to heiress to regenerative investor. Much of that is local, community investing.

David Roswell is the Triangle Facilitator of Regenerative Finance and Member of Resource Generation, a place for young people with wealth to explore how their financial resources relate to social justice and to provide tools for them to take meaningful action.

Josh Humphreys is a Senior Fellow at the Croatan Institute and is a leading analyst of sustainable and responsible investing trends.

In this session they will push the discourse around investing – asking how can we invest in a way that re-distributes land, wealth and power? How, as a high net worth individual, do I combine Money & Meaning in my investment decisions?

How can we use our money to help our communities be more democratic, equitable, loving and ecologically regenerative?
Do we need to fundamentally redefine what it means to invest?
Tough questions, but the answers will create the future we will all live in.
