When: August 28th and 29th
Where: CONNECT 34 Westland Row, Dublin 2
In late August Thomas Greco, the author of The End of Money and the Future of Civilization, is participating in four events in Ireland.
From August 25-27 Thomas will be at the Cloughjordan eco-village where he will take part in the P2P Summer School : The Art of Commoning, described fully at http://openeverything.ie/
On the evening of Friday 28th, Thomas will give a presentation on The Liberation of Money and Credit, outlining the fundamental importance of reclaiming the credit commons and showing how communities and businesses can reduce their dependence on bank borrowing and conventional, political forms of money. The event will be hosted by CONNECT (formerly CTVR – http://ctvr.ie/), at their Dublin city centre venue and supported by Feasta. After the talk Thomas will join a panel of Michel Bauwens and Kevin Flanagan of the P2P Foundation, Rachel O’Dwyer of Trinity College and Graham Barnes of Feasta for a Q&A session. Registration for this event is here.
On Saturday, Thomas will run a one day workshop for currency activists, practitioners, researchers, and social entrepreneurs on The Exchange Revolution: Taking complementary currencies and moneyless trading to a new level, also at the CONNECT venue in Dublin. Anyone with a specific interest in developing and extending the impact of community currencies, mutual credit, and other complementary exchange mechanisms is invited to attend. Online registration is here.
The event will be structured along the lines of the workshop presentation Thomas did in Athens July 24-25. See: https://beyondmoney.files.wordpress.com/2015/07/workshop-athens.ppsx
Finally, at 7.15pm on Tuesday 1st September Thomas will lecture on Communities, Currencies and the Commons: Democratising money & enterprise after the Euro-Greek crisis at Queens University in Belfast (the University Senate Room). The event is hosted by QUB School of Law partnered by Positive Money NI. Contact: [email protected]
The P2P Summer School is taking bookings now, with special rates available for the unwaged. The other events are free entry – a retiring collection will be made in all cases for participants to show their appreciation of Thomas’ work and to wing him on his way back home to the U.S. For more background on Thomas’ work see http://beyondmoney.net/.
