Discussion series: Another Financial system & Money for Finland

Want to strengthen new economy and solidarity economy building, and through this a furthering of our commons?

Welcome to this discussion series as part of a process calling together interested in discussing and promoting alternatives to our current money system!

The series wants to go over the different levels of the discussion as part of a whole, and we hope that opening a joint discussion between different actors, groups and initiatives, will strengthen joint learning, alternative building, as also political demand shaping.

The process started off with this invitation that we published earlier this autumn.

Welcome to join at any point of the process!
