On 12-12-12, our event will promote a new economy which empowers local communities, serves all members of the community, and connects instead of separates people.
Economy provides us with many opportunities to manifest interconnectedness. In a new economy, money can be something that connects instead of separates people. The magic happens when the principle of money creation is turned back to serving the many – the common good – instead of serving the few shareholders of various banks. This is a key factor for building a genuinely sustainable society. It can be done in many ways, such as commonly owned banks, gift economy principles or complementary local currencies that ensure stable local economies in times of global crisis.
