Essential Knowledge for Transition
Understanding the economy, money and investing and how to transform them for a regenerative world
Weekend course in Santa Cruz organized by Santa Cruz Permaculture
Few of us realized the extent to which the design of the money system, the economic system and the financial system constraints our choices and frustrates our desire to bring forth a more healthy and compassionate world. Regular people feel intimidated by the language used by experts and confused by jargon. The purpose of the weekend course is to provide an accessible understanding of money, the economy and investing. We will identify the design flaws of those systems and find out how we can participate in their transformation. In the first section “Breaking the money taboo” we will talk about the money system, alternative currencies and ways to redesign money so that it works for all members of society and in balance with a healthy environment. In the section “Beyond Capitalism” we will explore the economy and healthier alternatives to capitalism. Finally in the section “Investing for the World we Want” we will look at the role finance and investing can play in such transformation.
