    Impact investing is part of a growing trend of socially responsible practices that seek to reduce some of the negative consequences of traditional business activities.  By supporting companies and industries in worthwhile causes, impact investing can produce social or environmental benefits while also earning a profit.

    There is a huge part of water consumption indirectly through Electricity, Transport, Food.

  • Reflection Question
    Health & Equity Spend Time Outside
    What are the implications for a culture that spends most of its time inside and on screens?

    Spending too much screen time can lead to emotional, social and behavioral problems, anxiety, depression, obesity and sleep problems.

    Establishing few family rules can be helpful like no screens/digital devices during meals, in the car or in the bedrooms.
