Around the world, local and independent currencies are emerging to tackle the problems caused by our globalised industrial financial system. The Guild of Independent Currencies is a supportive network for this growing movement of new and experimental currency schemes, sharing knowledge and expertise for others to build on.
Over two days we will explore different currency models, hear from practitioners and learn how they are being used as tools to move us onto a fairer economy. A combination of presentations and practical workshops will invigorate and enable attendees to return home with a tool kit of ideas and practical steps to make a positive difference to their own communities.
Confirmed speakers include: Professor Nigel Dodd, LSE, Social Life of Money, Dr Peter North, University of Liverpool, Local Money, Henk van Arkel, CEO Social Trade Organisation and Professor Jem Bendell, Professor of Sustainability Leadership and Founder of the Institute for Leadership and Sustainability (IFLAS) plus presentations from Bristol Pound, Spice Time Credits, Hull Coin and Prospects Network with many other schemes attending.
The event is for anyone interested in local currencies, and how they can help us move to a fairer economy.
