What are some of the new financing models being developed to propel community-based renewable resource development, from just transition zones, to non-extractive and full-spectrum capital, to anchor institutions, to divestment/reinvestment campaigns.

Participants will leave understanding how frontline communities are organizing a wide array of allies to engage in shifting resources and power on an unprecedented scale.
