How can cities improve the lives of their citizens by creating local currencies?

How can cities improve the lives of their citizens by creating local currencies?

This was the topic of a keynote given by IFLAS Doctoral Researcher Leander Bindewald, at an event in Israel on the future cities.

IFLAS continues to promote awareness of how currency innovation could influence sustainable development. This includes support for a practitioner summit in Indonesia in December 2016 and a free online course which starts again in February 2017. A certificated course on currency innovation is also co-taught by Leander Bindewald in April in London.

Leander co-authored the key text on how to design and implement local currencies, published by the New Economics Foundation... "People Powered Money."
