CELEBRATE DAVID ATTENBOROUGH ON THE NEW £20 BANKNOTE

CELEBRATE DAVID ATTENBOROUGH ON THE NEW £20 BANKNOTE

We want the Bank Of England to reconsider their choice of who will be on the new £20 banknote (planned for release in 2020). It's currently planned to be J.M.W Turner (the English painter, known for his colourisation, imaginative landscapes and turbulent, often violent marine paintings). We are asking the Bank of England to break with tradition and celebrate a living person on a banknote (other than the Queen of course!).

Conservationist and all-around legend Sir David Attenborough has come out top in a list of ethical champions Brits want to be immortalised on the new £20 banknote (in new YouGov research commissioned for Good Money Week).

Why is this important?

It’s no surprise that Sir David Attenborough came out top in this poll. With his tireless conservation work, he would act as a constant reminder to the public to make ‘ethical’ money choices every single day.

'It is, surely, our responsibility to do everything within our power to create a planet that provides a home not just for us, but for all life on Earth'.

Good Money Week is the campaign to raise awareness of sustainable, responsible and ethical finance to help people make good money choices. Good Money Week aims to ensure that everyone knows they have sustainable and ethical options when it comes to their financial decisions. Good Money Week is taking place from the 8th-14th October 2017.

Sustainable and ethical investment and finance allows you to have a positive impact on the environment and society without sacrificing financial performance.
