Amy’s values are most closely aligned with Tribe Theme – Environment & Ecology. Amy passionately believes that Nature teaches us all we need to know about the changes we must make to ensure everyone and everything thrives. She believes that the root cause of so much of what we face as a global community stems from our disconnect and lack of engagement with Nature, and, therefore, with ourselves. She believes that the wisdom of our ancestors, still firmly rooted in indigenous peoples, has been lost and that their wisdom and many of those values need to be mainstreamed into finance if we are to create the resilient, regenerative and equitable new world we need. Amy also strongly feels that by empowering women and girls we seed the conditions for all forms of equality and immeasurably strengthen society and business in terms of contribution, decision making and action.
