Money makes the world go round. And yet, when it comes to the climate crisis – one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century – many of us aren’t using one of the biggest forms of power we have; our money, explains Money Movers Director, Anneka Deva. Anneka shares how switching towards a greener pension is up to 21 times more powerful for climate impact than stopping flying, going vegetarian, or changing energy supplier, combined. But women – 51% of humankind – aren’t using the power they have. So how do we support women to use the power they have to put their money to work for their own futures, and the future of the planet? Introducing Money Movers, a people-powered movement of 1000s of women coming together around dinner tables and zoom rooms to help each other move their money for the planet. In this talk, Anneka shows how women are shifting millions to climate-friendly institutions and investments, and becoming a powerful force for climate action. Anneka leads Money Movers, a movement of women taking climate action by moving their personal finances, using the power of peer support. Anneka is also Partnerships Director at Huddlecraft, specialists in peer-powered approaches to learning and change. She has previously worked at The Advocacy Academy and the University of Birmingham, and she founded TEDxBrum in Birmingham, UK. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
