The third and final Saturday afternoon talk in the 'Green Your Money' season at Lewes Climate Hub on 20 April will be looking at to make your own financial planning better for the planet.

Financial writers Juliet Oxborrow and Richard Tyszkiewicz will explore the 'greenest' current account and savings accounts. They'll also look at different ways to get planet-friendly investments into your pension - whether you have a pension from your employer or a personal pension that you've set up yourself - and also into a tax-free individual savings accounts (ISAs).

Finally, they'll show ways to invest directly in young enterprises locally and around the UK seeking to do social and environmental good.

Juliet Oxborrow, a director of Lewes Climate Hub, said: "Where we choose to bank, save and invest can have a massive impact on our carbon footprint and sends out an important message about the sort of financial products we want. But the huge array of 'sustainable' savings, pensions and investments can be baffling. It can also be hard to know what's 'green washing' and what's not. We hope to provide some answers."
