"Not that sustainable or that environmentally friendly. And so what we're hoping to do is to really build this momentum with integrity rather than people. Again, just trying to make money off of it. People all making money once did he shows fifteen billion US dollars where poor into impact investment in two thousand fifteen venture capitalists, Cyrano, Cohen predicted tipping point for the movement will happen in twenty twenty when Bloedel impact assets. I expected to reach free hundred billion. My personal thinking is if we don't reach a tipping point pretty soon and turn this, we're going to lose the battle and we're gonna lose it serve. We have to start investing in a way that protects the planet that protects its people. And I'm really hopeful that this movement's going to have a lot to do with that and moving people's awareness, moving the needle making that tipping point arrive where it's just unheard of to invest in something that you don't understand. You would say, I want to be careful with how I invest because I care about the world. One way we invest is by putting our money bents, but over free dozens banks, including Wells Fargo, Bank of America and CitiBank support in findings Adecco the access pipeline climate activists in the EPA said, the pipeline will increase greenhouse gases, endanger wildlife, in effect, local American Indian tribes Susa folder in two thousand seventeen Seattle became the first city to break ties with Wells Fargo in protest. So what do you think need to happen right now? I don't know what specifics I would name, but my role in it is to continue with this conference and other smaller events to continue to educate people and to get more people aware that you don't just hand your retirement funds to some relative stranger inside just make me some money that you have options that you can take that money, whether it's thirty thousand dollars a CD and invested in a credit union that supports your community are whether it is, you know, millions of dollars. If you're a person of high net worth that you would work with someone who would give you that return that you want in impact not just and all others, and I want to educate people so that they know that they can do that. So what would you re come into lease Nur's might not console themselves let investors right. And once you participate all they might not consider them investor because they don't think they have fifty thousand dollars to invest will in. It's not just about investment. It could be a hundred dollars that you put in a credit union. I mean, honestly, investigate your Bank, do you appreciate its values? If you don't look for a credit union or a smaller local Bank that support your local community, figure out what your values are and find just a banking institution where your pay check can go into that Bank and spend a few days, and then you spend it and you never have any money to invest, but you at least use your, allow your money to be co mingled with the money of other people who are thinking about their values in the same way you are, but more than just what you do with investments, what do you do with your money in general? Maybe you start looking more carefully at food labels about, is that organically. Grown? Is it locally grown is grown in a way this is good for the planning, or you look at some of your clothing options to make sure that at least a few things that you buy that you know that it came from a factory that didn't use slave labor in any way, and I'm an apple addict, and I've got my iphone. I've got my ipad. All of those have minerals in it that are bad for the environment. The working conditions are not ideal. An apple supplier in China, polluted river so badly into for teen that he turned the water into milk whites Greenpeace report that previous year should the company had pool polices relating to recycling apple, us scenes, promise to shape up and as increased reciting program. That's a great for step, but I think the key is to build products that don't have negative impact on the environment. I'm not saying, you know, you gotta check everything out, but find something in your life is okay in this area of my life. This is where I'm going to work to do a better job of being a conscious consumer. That's awesome. Because exactly what the idea of the guest. I really love that you seeing that. So you're in the trench everyday, kind of, you know, making a difference in the world. So you're on the trench everyday, working at creating a better world for future generation. What other most exciting trends you are witnessing in your community that gives you hope for the future. This is going to sound like I'm. Going the opposite direction, but I think that the most exciting thing to me is how bad it is right now that what we're seeing in the government in our country right now with a proclivity to war, with zero respect for people of color who are fighting every day for their lives, and they can't even be given the dignity, allow the dignity to kneel for a national anthem without being called out and the way the prison industrial complex is growing, and it is getting so obvious that we have to do something different. That's exciting to me while life are being hurt, and it's a terrible time. I am very hopeful that people will not be able to ignore this any longer, and people will not be able to turn the other way and say, well, you know, I just, you know, live my life. You can't live your life and a society that is so blatantly disrespect. Awful humanity. And one of the tenants tried to live my life by is to respect the dignity of every human being. And I'm hopeful that that will become a mantra in this country that we respect the dignity of every human being, and we will not let this government currently is running things continue in the direction that it's going, and we'll insist that change. So that gives me some hope. Well, thank you so much for your time and thank you for grad conference and the help you have twice as many people next year and that it gets growing navy, not twice as many we can handle, maybe ten percent more, you know, but thank you anyway. Three thousands, a lot of people to cook supper for. Yeah. Great. Well, thank you so much. Thank you.
