I change the news

Change the news and win on Banking on Values Day

Make your own headline you’d like to see in the future and you could win a Zero Waste kit!

At the Global Alliance for Banking on Values, we are convinced that if people, banks and government used money in a positive way we could change the news and make the world a better place to live in, as values-based banks are already doing.

Celebrate Banking on Values Day 2020 with us by writing and sharing a news headline invented by you describing your dream for a fairer or greener future possible with a more conscious use of money.

Post it from the 17th to the 25th of November on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #BankingOnValues.

For example:

“Women lead 60% of the companies in Paraguay”. Can you imagine that? I choose #BankingOnValues to support women entrepreneurs.

“All banks in Japan stop investing in the oil industry”. Can you imagine? I choose #BankingOnValues to make this possible.

“The racial wealth gap disappears in the United States”. Can you imagine this happening? I support #BankingOnValues to make it happen.

“The bike and transit local industries outdo the international car industry in Australia”. Can you imagine? I am with #BankingOnValues to support local sustainable manufacturing.

Optionally, you can add a related photo, GIF… so that you help the message reach further 😊

The authors of the posts will be in to win 15 fantastic Zero Waste kits as recognition for the contributions. The kit contains items for everyday use to make a more sustainable life easier.
