August 14 – 18 in the Findhorn Ecovillage
with John Rogers & Jonathan Dawson
featuring eminent guest speakers Richard Douthwaite,
Margrit Kennedy & Bernard Lietaer by teleconference
plus other local money practioners
“The way that money works today is one of the great invisible drivers of our rapacious earth- and community-devouring economy. So much so that green economist, Richard Douthwaite, has said: “If people living in an area cannot trade among themselves without using money issued by outsiders, their local economy will always be at the mercy of events elsewhere. The first step is for any community aiming to become more self-reliant is therefore to establish its own currency system”.
It is with this very much in mind that Findhorn College has created a 5-day course in community currency design called On The Money that runs from August 14 – 18 in the Findhorn Ecovillage – please visit findhorncollege.com for more details and to download a flyer. The week will be held by currency designers, John Rogers and Jonathan Dawson, and includes teleconference presentations and discussions involving internationally celebrated community currency experts, Richard Douthwaite, Margrit Kennedy and Bernard Lietaer.
