Richard Douthwaite will present the work of Feasta’s Liquidity Network at Transition Kinsale’s event: The Future of Money?

Learn how our present money system works, why the crash happened and explore what can be done for the future.

Friday March 18th at 8pm in The Friary Centre, Kinsale.

Also speaking will be Frank Kruger of the Community Exchange Model.

(Richard Douthwaite is visiting the town as Kinsale was the winner of the FEASTA Anne Behan Community Sustainability Award. Feasta presents this award to the Transtion community in Ireland which, in the opinion of a panel of judges, has done most to build local resilience, economic self-reliance, to strengthen itself socially and culturally and to protect and enhance its natural environment.)
