Our organization will make an impact through three areas  of action:

1. Events

To bring all sustainable finance enthusiasts together, we aim to launch a series of annual events where fellow YSF members can meet each other, connect, and get inspired by an array of guest speakers!

2. Research, 

As the new generation, we feel it is OUR responsibility to divulge and spread a positive, yet realistic, message on the field of sustainable finance. For that reason, we aim to conduct research, document the key takeaways from our events, and develop content that can be shared with the wider public. 

3. Consultation

We strive to become a representative of the younger generation of finance professionals. YSF will provide its own thoughts and input to roundtable discussions, and/or consultations by companies, governments and/or the media
