Today’s mainstream economy: We depend on a global financial industrial system with immense productive capacity, but we’re hitting the physical limits of the earth’s systems – climate change looms, allocation of resources is very unequal, dissent is growing.

The good news: Many people are already exploring alternative ways of living and organising which offer other possible futures. What could the future look like for money, business, ownership, cities, in an economy fit for people and planet?

The event is for anyone interested in how we move towards a fair economy bounded by the reality of a finite planet.

Confirmed speakers include: Michel Bauwens – P2P Foundation, Fran Boait – Positive Money, Molly Scott Cato – MEP, Tony Greenham – RSA, Catherine Howarth – Shareaction, Diego La Mondena – Economy for the Common Good, Constance Laisné – Altgen Youth Coop,  Jeremy Leggett – Solar Century, Dan O’Neill – University of Leeds, Ciaran Mundy – The Bristol Pound, Ed Mayo – Cooperatives UK, Jules Peck – Real Economy Lab, Kate Raworth – Doughnut Eonomics,  John Thackara – Doors of Perception, James Vaccaro – Triodos Bank and a Director of Bristol Green Capital Partnership CIC.
