This series will explain how our understanding of four concepts — energy, ecology, Earth and evolution — has been profoundly enhanced and greatly simplified by the complexity sciences.  (Note: the complexity sciences are also very relevant for permaculture and holistic management; operation of successful organizations, companies, corporations and institutions; health and healing; and virtually everything else.)During 2016, this lecture series will be offered in multiple towns in our region, and evolve into a learning community project involving both classroom activity and outdoor experiences, applying the ideas in nature while practicing both modern and traditional outdoor living skills and survival skills.  A video series will also be produced.

Community Currency is the topic of the month.  We’ll show a couple of short videos and then open up for discussion while enjoying each other’s company and some light refreshments.  We’ll kick everyone out by 8:30 so all can get a good night’s sleep, and get up early the next morning all eager to start rearranging our economic future! “In economics, a local currency, is a currency that can be spent a particular area at participating organizations. Usually it will act as a complementary currency, that is to be used in addition to a national currency, rather than replace it. The purpose is to encourage spending within the local community, especially with locally owned businesses. This may also help reduce environmental footprints. The currency may not be backed by a national government or be legal tender. As a tool of fiscal localism, local currency can raise awareness of the state of about the local economy They are useful for people who are unfamiliar or uncomfortable with traditional bartering. They encompass a wide range of forms, both physically and financially, and often are associated with a particular economic discourse.”  Wikipedia.
