Living Economies Educational Trust's purpose is to promote learning about currencies, and systems of exchange, that foster community well-being and strengthen regional economies. We are a registered charitable trust (CC38114).
full objectives are:
current work includes speaking tours and educational workshops (often
at the invitation of specific community groups), providing resources
(for example, through our online store), and providing information to
support local inititaives. We also look for other opportunities (such
as media opportunities) to provide educational information, and in
2017 we hosted a Living Economies Expo in Lyttleton (Christchurch)
with a range of national and international speakers on community-led
responses to interlinked financial, social, and environmental
challenges. We are in the process of making video and other materials
from that conference available online.
volunteers welcome inquiries from community groups and individuals
seeking to start or develop local initiatives. This type of direct
educational outreach is central to our mission.
