Julien Vincent

Market Forces

Big Idea: 

Most of us don’t know where our banks, pensions funds, and insurers put our money. Market Forces exposes when the custodians of our wealth invest in destructive and harmful projects, like new coal mines and power plants. They mobilize customers and use grassroots campaigns to motivate the finance sector to shift investment away from fossil fuels. They’ve successfully influenced the largest banks in Australia and now aim to expand to Southeast Asia.

Julien is an environmental campaigner and activist. He studied climate science and geography and then became a Climate and Energy Campaigner with Greenpeace Australia Pacific. After eight years leading grassroots campaigns, he founded Market Forces to take campaigns directly to the boardrooms of the finance sector.
