On Friday, the Earth Equity team closed the office and participated in the Global Climate Strike from 11 am until 1 pm. Hundreds turned out first at Pack Square and then the group transitioned over to the front of Asheville City Hall to express their concern about the glacial pace of climate solutions being offered by world leaders.
The event was driven by students – many taking off from school to take part in the event. They carried signs and gave speeches and acted like the leaders that we expect our adults to be. I saw a post on social media over the weekend that summed up the event perfectly: It was a photo of a sign carried by a student and said “You know it’s time for change when children act like leaders and leaders act like children.”
Earth Equity Advisors will continue to do our part, helping our clients align their investments with their values, offering climate solutions and divesting client assets from fossil fuels and other questionable companies. We were proud to be part of a global movement to make the world a better place for all.
