The Croatan Forum is produced by Croatan Institute, an independent nonprofit research institute whose mission is to harness the power of investment for social good and ecological resilience.
The goal of the Forum is to create a thought-provoking, multi-day conversation where 75-100 people will gather to discuss cross-cutting issues that are central to the Institute's mission, such as place-based investing in regenerative agriculture and resilient, regional food systems; total portfolio approaches to impact investing in climate solutions, business and human rights, and socially inclusive business; investor engagement on environmental and social challenges; and financial sustainability and systemic risk.
Please join this important conversation on October 2-4, 2018, at the Full Frame Theater near the Institute's offices in downtown Durham, North Carolina.
A group of local and national experts are advising on program creation for the inaugural Croatan Forum.
