do-trees-grown-on-money

Can the 12 principles of permaculture be applied to the financial sector and money? What would a money system based on the principles look like, and how would we apply the principle of observation and interaction when designing financial alternatives? Do small and slow solutions work in the context of a global system? Come along to discuss these practical questions in an evening with Duncan McCann of the New Economics Foundation and Brett Scott, author of The Heretic’s Guide to Global Finance: Hacking the Future of Money.

ipc_website

The Permaculture Association will be hosting the 12th International Permaculture Convergence in London from August to September 2015.

The London Permaculture Network is focusing on working groups dedicated to Media, Edge Events and Learning, Knowledge and Dissemination in particular. There are 12 working groups and help is needed across the board. A shout-out for volunteers has come from the Welcome & Tranquility working group which is coordinating the designs around all aspects of welcome & tranquility for the IPC, and judging by the ideas already there are likely to be many opportunities for people to get involved. They would love to have input and support from London folk in particular, as our local knowledge will be a real asset. If anyone is interested and wants more info, then email Celia Ashman ( welcome@ipcuk.events)

Check out the new website (https://ipcuk.events/) for more details and ideas. Register on the website and be the first to get discounted tickets.
